What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan is a system where libraries across the state, country, continent, and the globe agree to share parts of their collections with each other. They may loan books and other returnable materials for a short period of time. They also may provide photocopies of journal articles, book chapters or other materials within the boundaries of copyright laws and guidelines.
Borrowing textbooks for classes is strongly discouraged because of scarcity and the relatively short lending periods. Please refer to these links for obtaining textbooks: Sources for Textbooks
