Circulation and Reserve services are available at the 1st floor main desk. The desk is staffed during business hours. Some FAQs about our services:


 Interlibrary Loan

Through cooperative agreements with other libraries, resources across the nation are available to eligible Bloomsburg University users. At Andruss Library, Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery are available to faculty, staff, and students when materials they need are not in our collection or are not available online.

Be sure to check BU Books & More, online catalog, (for books) or Publication Finder (for articles) before requesting an interlibrary loan, to make sure the Library does not already have the item. If unsure, ask a librarian for assistance.
