Reserve & Request

Course Reserve Request Form  
Instructors can request that library materials, including books, copies of articles, and DVDs, be placed on reserve at either the Philadelphia campus library or Newtown's Learning Resource Center for in-library or short-term use by students in their classes. Instructors may also place items they own on reserve for their classes.

Interlibrary Loan Form  
Books and journal articles not available at Holy Family may be obtained via Interlibrary Loan. You must be a student, faculty, or staff member of the university to use this service. Some materials, such as textbooks, popular movies, and newly-published books may not be available through this service.

Students: Schedule an APA or Research Session  
Students may use this form to request a one-on-one consultation with a librarian to begin research on a paper, find sources, or review the APA/MLA formatting of their paper and/or references. We offer both online and in-person options, which is ideal for online learners and Newtown students. A confirmation will be sent once an appointment is made.  Please contact if you have any questions.

Faculty and Instructors: Schedule an Instruction Session  
Instructors can use this calendar to book library instruction sessions for their classes. Sessions are held either within the Library's research lab, remotely, or in class. In these sessions, patrons will develop skills to discover/evaluate research information, plagiarism, and proper citation.

Suggest Items for the Library  
This service allows Holy Family University faculty, staff, and students to recommend items for purchase by the Library. Items will be considered as long as they support the University's academic programs and fit within the Library's budget. HFU Librarians will review all suggestions and notify requesters of their decision.
