Using the Library
The library has implemented several changes for the Fall 2020 semester.
Visit the Biddle Operations and Services Guide for the most updated information.
Scan and Deliver Service
Students may request scanned materials from Biddle’s physical collections found in LOLA, our library catalog. Only materials with the status Available can be scanned.
Requests may take up to 4 business days to be fulfilled. Students may request up to two scans per day.
In adherence with U.S. copyright law, the library cannot scan entire books. Textbooks, course readings, study aids, or any other course materials are not eligible for this service.
Members of the Penn Law community may request materials from other libraries through Biddle’s Interlibrary Loan Service. Please check the holdings at Penn and Drexel Libraries before placing an ILL request.
Fall 2020 - Spring 2021: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we cannot obtain entire books from other libraries. Book chapters and articles may be requested.
We are implementing a new interlibrary loan system that will allow you to manage requests via your My Account portal. During this interim period, please direct any questions to The Biddle Interlibrary Loan Team.
Law Journal Associate Editors: Please continue to direct your interlibrary loan requests to your Research Editor.
