HIST 399 - Ancient Egypt

Materials at Our Library

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the library's physical collection is currently 'by request' only. You'll need to request any books, issues of journals, or other items that you wish to use for your paper and then library staffers will get them for you.

While you can request materials in person at the front desk, it's easier to do it ahead of time and just pick them up when they're ready for you.

  1. Search for the item you want on the library's home page: www.cobleskill.edu/library.
  2. Log in if you haven't already.
  3. Click on Place Request and then Send Request.
  4. We'll email you when it's ready for pick up.

You can even request a scan of just a chapter if that's all you need; use the Request a Scan button.

Please see the Fall 2020 guide for other changes related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Materials at Other Libraries

If our library does not have the materials you need for this assignment, we can borrow them from other libraries through the interlibrary loan process. Try selecting "Other Libraries" in the dropdown menu of the search box. If you can't find what you need there, you can make a request using our Interlibrary Loan request form (see below). It usually takes 1-2 weeks to get in a loaned books, so make sure to request them with plenty of time before your assignment is due!


This quick tutorial shows you step-by-step how to request materials from the library's collection.
