Accessing Our Print Collections

The Pratt Institute Libraries are now offering two ways to access our print collections: Request a Pickup and Request a PDF.

Click the "Request a Pickup" button on individual item records to schedule a contact-free pickup appointment. Patrons must adhere to Pratt's campus access procedure in order to pick up materials. 

You can also request a PDF scan of any print journal article or book chapter we have in the print collections. All you need to do is search our online catalog, and click the "Request a PDF Scan" button on available items.
