Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery 570.484.2311 | Clearfield 814.768.3412
Items not available in either library can be obtained from other libraries by submitting an electronic request through ILLIAD, the library's interlibrary loan service.
Document Delivery/Microform Scanning Service
Some journal articles and other items are only available on microfilm at Stevenson Library. You can determine if this is so by looking at LHU JournalFinder. If an item is on microfilm you can make a print copy of the article using one of the two microfilm reader/printers located near the microfilm collection in Stevenson Library.
Faculty may request that a copy of any journal article held by the University Libraries, whether it is available in print or microfilm, be scanned at no change and sent to their email address. This service is referred to as Document Delivery and is available through ILLiad.
Certain other documents (ERIC documents, the Kinesiology Publications of the University of Oregon) are also maintained on microfiche at Stevenson Library. Faculty may request that significant portions of these longer documents be scanned for you through this service. Please contact Susan Hanna (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 570-484-2311 if you have questions.

Library Instruction Purposes
The goal of the Library Instruction Program is to support the curriculum and to foster and develop the information literacy skills and competencies of our students.
Through library instruction and assignment consultation services, librarians aid in bridging the gap between the classroom/lecture experience and the independent learning students are expected to accomplish outside the classroom.
Librarians tailor instruction sessions to accommodate:
- Curriculum Goals
- Research Criteria
- Subject Areas
- Time Constraints
- Ability Levels
The library strives to provide a balanced collection of print, electronic, internet and multimedia sources to accommodate the diverse information, instruction, and research needs of our library users.
In addition to selection, development and collection maintenance, the role of the librarian is to:
- Encourage faculty to share in the process of selecting materials for the library based on their areas of expertise.
- Inform faculty of relevant budgetary issues relating to the purchase of library materials.
- Alert faculty to the release of new titles via tools such as Choice cards, publisher’s advance notices and other sources of review.
- Discuss new initiatives in order that the library may assure availability of resources.
