Travel and Study Abroad

Library Services for Study Abroad Students

To access library materials while you are abroad:

  • Access e-journals and e-books through LionSearch and the Libraries databases (log in with your Penn State ID and password)
  • Copies of book chapters and articles that are not available online can be requested through interlibrary loan (Illiad)
  • The Libraries will provide an electronic copy posted to your Illiad account.
  • To request items while you're abroad, log into Illiad and click "Change user information" under Profile on the left. Change your campus location to "Research at a Distance" and your pickup location to "World."

Have a research question while you're overseas? Get help online from a librarian by chat or e-mail.
