Students are able to access library materials while studying remotely via MUSCAT Plus and library databases. When accessing library resources from off campus, users will be prompted to sign in using their campus credentials for authentication.

Students can request scans of individual chapters within library books. For copyright purposes we can't scan entire books, but scanning a chapter or two (up to 10% of the book) is acceptable.
Many of the books in MUSCAT Plus have chapter information. Search MUSCAT Plus, click on a book's title, and look for a Contents section:
Students studying off campus can submit requests for library-owned books or interlibrary loan books to be shipped to their home address (continental US only). 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 Scans" instructions above.
Gettysburg College students, faculty, and staff are able to request books, book chapters, and articles from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan.
For step-by-step instructions on how to make a request, renew an item, and more, see our guide to Interlibrary Loan services.
