Overview

Who has privileges at Lippincott Library Reserves, and for how long can reserves be used?

All University of Pennsylvania students, faculty, and staff are eligible to use reserve materials for 3 hours at a time within the Van Pelt - Dietrich Library Center. Materials may be renewed for an additional 3 hours, as long as others are not waiting to use them. To use materials, request them at the Lippincott Library Information Desk. A PennCard or Library Courtesy Card is required to check out reserve items.

Print or physical reserves

Physical materials on reserve in Lippincott show the location of 'Lippincott Library - Reserve Desk' in Franklin. The Reserve Desk, also known as the Information Desk, in Lippincott Library is on the 2nd Floor, west side of the Van Pelt - Dietrich Library Center. We have many of the required and supplementary course readings for Wharton School classes. Items such as DVDs may also be placed on reserve.
