Orientation to New Chinese Students - Bradford Campus: Borrowing within PITT and Beyond

This guide provides an overview of library resources and services to Chinese students on the Bradford Campus

Get It !: Borrowing within the PITT Libraries 匹兹堡大学图书馆系统内的借阅服务

Using Get It! you will be able to have a book that is NOT CHECKED OUT to be delivered to you from any of the ULS libraries, including the Storage facility and the four branch campus libraries.

For instance, you normally check out books from Bradford Campus Library, but the book you are interested in has been checked out by someone else, or Bradford Campus Library does not have what you are looking for, but the Storage facility or the Greensburg Campus Library does, then you can use Get It! to have it delivered to Hanley Library.

Get It!服务能帮助你获取大学图书馆系统内任何一家图书馆没有被外借的图书,包括校外书库(Storage)和4个分校区的图书馆。 比如,您经常从Bradford Campus Library借书,但您现在想借的这本书已经被借出,或者不在Bradford,而是在Storage,或者在Greensburg Campus。这时,您就可以使用Get It!,使您需要的书送到Hanley Library。 具体步骤如下:

  •  在PITTCat上找到那本书的记录
  •  点击记录上方的Get It!链接
  •  用您的匹兹堡大学电子邮件名和密码登录
  • 登录进Get IT!平台后,您会看见两个选择: Recall(催还),还有Get It!(送达)。根据您的情况任选其一。
  •  按照电脑屏幕上的要求输入所需信息,选择Bradford Lending 作为图书被送达的图书馆。如果不选,系统会自动选择Hillman Gr. Fl. Lending。
  • 提交服务申请。图书到达后,您会收到电子邮件通知。

Getting Books and Journal Articles From Storage 从校外书库借书或传送期刊文章

Most items are shelved in Storage. In PITTCat and PittCat+ they are displayed with Library Collections Storage Unit as the location. You may use the Get it! to request books in Storage to be delivered to any ULS library you designate. You may also request  articles to be scanned and sent in PDF from journals shelved in Storage. Just follow the following steps.

 匹兹堡大学图书馆系统的绝大部分图书和期刊资料都存放在校外书库(Storage)。在PITTCat上,显示为“Library Collections Storage Unit”。读者可以从PITTCat记录的界面上提出申请,要求把校外书库的书送到您指定的大学图书馆系统内的任何一个图书馆。您也可以要求把校外书库的期刊上的文章扫描,以PDF的形式通过电子邮件传送给您。具体步骤如下:

  • 在PITTCat Classic 或者PITTCat+上找到那本书的记录。如果您是在PITTCat+上找到该记录,当您打开记录时, 系统会将您转到PITTCat界面。
  • 点击记录上方的Get It!链接
  • 用您的匹兹堡大学电子邮件名和密码登录
  • 登录进Get IT!平台后,点击下拉菜单(drop-down menu),您会看见两个选择: Recall(催还),还有Get It!(送达)。选Get It!(送达)。
  • 按照电脑屏幕上的要求输入所需信息,选择 Bradford Lending 作为图书被送达的图书馆。如果不选,系统会自动选择Hillman Gr. Fl. Lending。
  • 点击 OK 提交服务申请。图书或文章到达后,您会收到电子邮件通知。
