Fayette Student Guide

Everything you need to know about the Library and how to use it.


This guide was created to help students navigate Library tools and services more effectively. This guide contains up-to-date procedures on requesting material, reserving study spaces, and evaluating resources, as well as information about the Coal and Coke Heritage Center.

Ask A Librarian

Students are encouraged to try the Ask A Librarian feature when their campus librarian is unavailable and they have an immediate need or question. Users will be connected with a Penn State Librarian who can help answer questions and guide them to appropriate resources.
