PAWS is a research consultation feature for UAlbany students, faculty and staff that provides a one-hour appointment with a reference librarian. Currently offered virtually only. This is especially helpful for larger projects and research papers.
Circulation of physical materials is currently suspended, including via Interlibrary Loan ILL. Any physical material requests will be held and processed at a later date. Scanning of physical items from the University Libraries’ collections has been suspended until further notice. We will do our best to obtain requested articles and book chapters from other libraries. If you find the information of your article(s) in one of our databases, you can submit your request by clicking on "Find it! Request Item" in the record of the title(s) you need. Your request form will be automatically populated! All you need to do is to click on "Submit request".
Access databases on- and off-campus. Ask us if you have access problems that you cannot resolve. When the article(s) you need are not available online in the libraries, request them through Interlibrary Loan.
