Check the Library Hours page for hours of operation. If you have trouble swiping in, contact the ID Card Office at 717-337-(x6326) or email@example.com.
Library patrons with a College ID are able to request items from the library’s collection. Faculty, staff, and on-campus students can pick up requested items in the library, contact-free. All remote students (including those living off campus in Gettysburg) should fill in your address in the comment section to have library books mailed to you remotely. Here’s how to do it:
Students studying off campus can submit requests for library-owned books to be shipped to their home address. The books will be shipped to you with a pre-paid UPS return label. To request an individual chapter from a book, see the Requesting Musselman Library Book Chapters instructions.

Reserves books can be searched in MUSCAT Plus by clicking the Advanced Search button and choosing the Course Reserves limiter. From there, you can search by course name, professor name, or book title. Here's how the process works:

The following tutorials explain how to find and access different library resources from off campus.
Faculty, staff, and administrators will have to use the Duo Mobile two-factor authentication (2FA) app for the following library services when accessing from off-campus:
For help with Duo 2FA, contact IT at 717-337-7000 or email@example.com. Library staff are unable to assist with Duo issues. More information about Duo can be found at https://www.gettysburg.edu/offices/information-technology/how-do-i/2fa.
Access to the library's subscription databases from off-campus must be authenticated through the EZProxy server. If you are creating links for students to access library resources to include in Moodle, use the link generator to properly construct the links. For help with creating persistent links that will work off-campus, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
