Textbooks for Swarthmore Students

How to Borrow Instead of Buy

Searching the Catalog

Requesting Delivery

The TriCollege Libraries have a delivery service that moves materials between nine libraries on three campuses.  To ask for delivery to any location search the library catalog, display the detailed information screen, and click on "Request."  You will be asked to login to your library account, select the item you want, and select the pickup location. 

When the book arrives you can check it out for a regular loan period but please note that books in high demand may be recalled by the library so that they can be put on reserve for the whole class or books in high demand may be recalled by a classmate or other library patron.
