Due to coronavirus precautions, most library operations and all but the 24/7 space will be unavailable until further notice. Books are available to PTS students, faculty, and staff through a twice-weekly (Mondays and Thursdays) request-ahead pickup service in the library lobby. Requests for books should be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests should be submitted by 9 a.m. on Monday or Thursday. All books should be returned through the outdoor book drop or the front desk book drop.
Only those who receive a green checkmark from the LiveSafe app health check may come to campus. To gain entry to the lobby for book pickup or to use the computer lab or printer, swipe your OneCard badge on the post outside the library doors. Feel free to use the spaces in the 24/7 area, and please follow these guidelines:
If you are unsure of how to access material in our digital collections when not on campus, see the Remote Access LibGuide for more information. Off-campus accessibility is only provided to PTS students, faculty, and staff, with the exception of ATLAS for Alums. When entering your last name to log in for electronic access, omit hyphens, apostrophes, and spaces. If you encounter problems with remote access, call the circulation desk during library hours at 412-924-1354, or email Carrie Carter, Mark Russell, Tisha Woo, or email@example.com.
