HIS 471: Seminar in American History: Animals in American History: Interlibrary Loan


You can use PALCI to search for book titles, authors, and even subject keywords.  This service provides a number of ways to expand and narrow your search and allows you to order books through Interlibrary Loan at the same time.

Login and start searching!


You can use HawkShare to request journal articles and other materials that you cannot find in PALCI.  If this is your first time using the system, you will need to fill out a brief registration form.
Articles are delivered as PDF to your account. Books must be picked up at the library.

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loan allows the Library to borrow books and articles from other libraries across the country. If you see a book or article that we do not have in the collection, request it through Interlibrary Loan and we can order it from another school. We usually receive the book or article within 3-5 days, sometimes even within 24 hours. There is no charge for this service unless the book is overdue, damaged or lost.

Use HawkShare to order articles or book chapters that are delivered to your account for PDF access.

Use PALCI to search for and order books from other libraries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and West Virginia.  These books willl be delivered to Drexel Library. When the book arrives, an email will be sent to the student's SJU email address notifiying them when the book is available for pick up at Francis A. Drexel Library's Service Desk.
