If the book is marked as Lost, we are actively trying to find it.  It is not in its proper place on the shelves and we do searches to locate the materials.

Rather than wait for the book to be found, you can request a copy of the book through our PALCI inter-library loan system.  You can access the request system online at  Once you place your request, another Pennsylvania library will lend you the book and send it here to you at IUP.  You will get an email when your book has arrived.
