Rapid ILL

Have you found a journal article that library does NOT have full-text access to? Don't worry! We can get it for you within 48 hrs. and have it delivered straight to your email. This service is called Rapid ILL. To use it, access the link below. Research just got easier!

Remember - when requesting an article, please make sure all the information boxes are filled in. The ISSN is most important! It is the mechanism that sends the request to a library who has the article.

Library Services for July 2020

The building might be closed, but we're still here for your research!

 

We are offering residential mail service and curbside pickup for Warner Library's books and media.

 

Residential Mail Service:

1.  Place a hold on a book from the library's catalog. (See this guide for more directions.)

2.  We will retrieve your materials and mail them to you with a prepaid return label included. We will also send a follow up email to confirm your request and our actions.

 

Curbside Pickup:

1.  Place a hold on a book from the library's catalog. (See this guide for more directions.)

2.  We will retrieve your materials and send an email to confirm your request and pickup time. We will then place them in a bag with your name on it outside the door facing Walton Hall.

 

If you have books or media to return:

  • You can pop them in the mail to: Warner Library, 1300 Eagle Road, St. Davids, PA, 19087. Current students, faculty, and staff can email us at reference1777@eastern.edu with your current address, and we will send you a prepaid label.
  • You can drop them off at our outdoor drop slot outside the entrance doors facing Walton Hall.
