New easier way to request materials

Temple Libraries is pleased to announce a new service that greatly simplifies requests for library materials from other campus libraries and the Library Depository. When you search the Diamond catalog and you find a book or an article in a bound volume that is at the Ambler Library and you’re at Main Campus, for example, all you have to do is click on the request button at the top of the catalog record, login using your access net account, indicate where you want to pick the material up, and hit the submit button. It’s that easy. We’ve eliminated those cumbersome forms. Also, for articles in bound volumes, you will receive those electronically through your Temple email account. No need to come to the library to pick those up.

This service is available for all material that is currently requestable – that is bound journals from the Depository, journal articles in bound volumes, and circulating books. Books that don’t circulate such as reference books or books that are checked out or missing, may not be requested. This service covers material in the following libraries: Paley and Media Services; SEAL; Ambler; Harrisburg; and Health Sciences Libraries. If you want to request material from Paley, Media Services or SEAL your pickup location must be Ambler, Harrisburg, or the Health Sciences Libraries.

The screenshot below illustrates how Diamond now looks for books and journals that can be requested:
