Access Services:

If you are new to Seton Hall, or are preparing new courses, please note that we offer:

Book/Film Ordering – Use this form to order books, ebooks, films for your courses.

Course Reserves - You can make specific resources easily available to your students, via print at the Walsh Library circulation desk or through electronic reserves. Please visit Course Reserves to fill out a request 2-3 weeks before the semester begins. This service allows your students to

save on textbook expenses with this service.

InterLibrary Loan -  Our  robust Interlibrary Loan network (ILL) can deliver electronically requested articles or book chapters, often within 24 hours.

We recommend searching our website first, as we have thousands of journal subscriptions and millions of ebooks, so you can get your materials quickly.  These videos demonstrate how to search books and articles. If we do not have the material, we recommend creating an ILL request as a second step. Please note that articles requested through ILL are not eligible for course use.

Local Borrowing outside of SHU

In addition to ILL, the SHU Community has multiple options for borrowing books at the South Orange Public Library, many local public libraries, and NJ colleges and universities.  Read more at:
