Interlibrary Loan

You may identify books or other publications not available at Criss Library.  If so, the library's Interlibrary Loan service can often borrow or obtain a copy from another library.  You will need to set up an Interlibrary Loan account the first time you submit a request.  Books typically take five days to a week to arrive; scanned copies of journal and magazine articles often arrive in two to four days.  Interlibrary Loan may also be able to borrow reels of microfilm.  Some items are difficult to find and require weeks to obtain, so submit Interlibrary Loan requests as soon as possible.
