connected to the LIU network. They provide Internet access and emulate
the computer terminals that are available in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn

contains catalog information for all LIU campuses, and for all books
at the Brooklyn Campus that were published or acquired after 1980.
Journal holdings and video titles may also be found on LIUCAT.
Most of the
Databases subscribed to by LIU Brooklyn Campus Library are available
remotely. The databases are
therefore available from your home or office computer.
You must provide your library barcode in order to search
the databases off campus.
Using LIU Materials
or Interlibrary Loans
may be borrowed from the LIU collection using a valid LIU ID card
to which a library barcode has been affixed. The number represented by the barcode is what
authorizes the transaction. You
may also request materials which are not available at LIU or at
Purchase, through Brooklyn’s
Rockland-dedicated Interlibrary Loan page, or call the Desk
at (718) 780-1679. Interlibrary loan requests may also be made using
the electronic forms available on the library web site. Processing
of these requests is usually done within 24 hours, but it may take
several days (or, in the case of ILL, more than a week) for the
material to be delivered to the Rockland Campus reception desk.
When the requested
book or article arrives, it will be held in your name at the reception desk. Loan periods vary by type of material
and according to the policies of the lending institutions. Check the
due date of everything you borrow and return it to the reception desk
LIU Reserve Collection & ERes
articles, or other materials placed “on reserve” by LIU faculty are
kept at the Purchase College circulation desk. When requesting this material, please identify
yourself as an LIU student, and provide as much information as possible
about the material that you need.
Some reserve materials are available through Brooklyn’s electronic
reserve system, called ERes. The
web address of ERes is http://breserves.liu.edu/. Your professor will indicate which materials
are available electronically and can provide passwords for accessing
