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.
Faculty Textbook Donations
Faculty may use this form to donate textbooks to the Library. Faculty should review the textbook for currency and accuracy of content, and its fitness for student use, prior to donation. HFU librarians will review all donations and notify faculty of their decision.

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.

HFU Librarians will review all suggestions and notify requesters of their decision.
