Palmer Student Library Orientation: Books
Palmer Seminary students can use this guide to learn all about the library services at their disposal.
Need a print book we don't have? Use EZ Borrow! Search and borrow books directly from over 52 college and university member libraries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and West Virginia. Books must be picked up at and returned to Warner Memorial Library. Several million to choose from!
How do I use the catalog to find books?
This brief tutorial shows you how to perform a simple and advance search within the library's catalog.
How do I place a library book on hold?
You can place a hold on books (up to 5 titles) that are available as well as ones that are currently unavailable. When your request has been filled (usually within 24-48 hrs) you will receive an email notification informing you that your requested item(s) are now available for pick up.
When you click on the "Place Hold" button, you will be directed to login with your EU ID number (you may need to add up to 3 zeros to your ID, even if your ID number starts with a 0) and PIN (last 4 digital of your EU ID).
Complete the process and submit.
*Contact the library with any issues logging into your account.
