Lending Services

We make every effort to provide other libraries with the items they need. Books are loaned for a five week period (no renewals). Occasionally, a special item (a reference book or periodical, for instance) is loaned out for a shorter period of time, usually three to five days use. Approval for a loan of this type must be obtained from the head of the respective departments. If the item cannot be loaned, a photocopy could be made if the applicable photocopy charges lie within the requestors MAXCOST.

Services are generally reciprocated to libraries that do not charge us.


We are open year round, with the exception of State and legal holidays. Our office is generally staffed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Central Standard Time). Our turnaround time is usually within 24 hours; however more processing time may be necessary for specialized items, or during holidays and interim sessions.

Billing method

FEIN: 48-6119268

We prefer IFM via OCLC, but will send an invoice with the shipped material when necessary.

The Pittsburg State University Axe Library actively encourages and participates in activities which foster the sharing of our Library materials, so that other libraries have access to a wider range of information.
