Faculty may place books, journal articles, and other materials on reserve at the Penn Museum Library. To ensure maximum availability for all users, most reserve materials do not leave the library. Some reserve items circulate overnight; contact circulation desk for additional information.

Some anthropology and archaeology reserve materials may be found in Van Pelt Reserve, located on the 1st floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.

When books are placed on reserve in departmental libraries, school libraries, or Van Pelt Reserve, locations are listed in Franklin, the on-line catalog.
