ASA - The Library Catalog

Search ASA, the library's catalog to find, or check access to, books, ebooks, journals, ejournals, conference papers, government documents and more. From ASA you can:

  • Renew your books online
  • Text the call number, title, and location of a book to your cell phone
  • Create reading lists


ASA can be used to determine the libraries' holdings or access to a specific journal, but it cannot be used to locate specific journal articles. To locate specific journal articles from our online collection, click the "Citation Linker" icon from the Library's home page.

Interlibrary Loan

Sometimes you will discover an article for which Lehigh does not have access to the full text. Or you may want an article that we own in print sent to you via email. Use Interlibrary Loan to request a .PDF of an article that isn't available at Lehigh or a scanned .PDF of a print article that Lehigh owns.

There are two options for interlibrary loan: 


Used to submit requests to borrow books from other academic libraries in the state of Pennsylvania.


Used to submit requests for journal articles, reports, conference papers, and books from other libraries. This is also the service used to request scanned copies of print articles owned by Lehigh University.

To register for ILLiad, please follow the steps in the tutorial linked directly below this section.

A note about ebooks: Due to publisher restrictions, e-books are not available to be borrowed or lent through interlibrary loan.

Off-Campus Access To Library Resources

The virtual private network, or VPN, is the best way to connect to library resources from off campus. Make sure to choose Library Resources from the Group drop-down menu when you sign in to the VPN.  Learn more about the VPN. ​LTS pro tip: most off-campus connectivity problems are solved by using the VPN to connect when using library resources.
