Library Services - Summer 2021

The Pratt Institute Libraries are excited to announce an expansion of our services this Summer as part of our staged reopening. Here’s some of what we offer!

  • NEW! Book and DVD pickup
    Books and DVDs can now be requested for picked up with no appointment necessary. Through links within library search results, you can select books and DVDs for pickup at both the Brooklyn and PMC libraries. Once your item is ready, you can swing by the library any time during our open hours to pick it up. 

  • NEW! Equipment pickup
    Equipment is now available for pickup with no appointments necessary. Feel free to visit the Equipment Loan Office anytime during opening hours to select, pickup, and return equipment.

  • PDF scanning
    Through links within library search results, you can request a scan of a book chapter or print article, which will be emailed to you within three business days. For more information see the Scanning Services page.

  • Research help
    Let our librarians help you find the information you need! Get research help via chat, email, and by appointment! Look for the “Ask a Librarian” pop up chat on the bottom right of the library’s webpage.  

  • Special Collections and Archives
    Materials from the libraries’ special collections and archives are available through scanning, video recordings, and scheduled research appointments. For more information see the research guides for Special Collections and the Archives

Although physical services are limited, the Pratt Institute Libraries are open and ready to serve you online with a wide range of collections and services! For more information see our website, or email
