Q. If I need a book that the library doesn’t have, can I still get it?


* If the library does not have an item you need, you may be able to borrow it from another library through Interlibrary Loans.

* To request a book:

* Write down the title, author, publisher, and date, or print out the citation record from Voyager

* Give the information to the librarian along with your name, library card number, phone number or email.

* To request an article:

* Write down the article title, author, journal, or periodical title, date of publication, the volume number and page numbers.

* Give the information to the librarian along with your name, phone number or email. * Some campus libraries will have you complete an Interlibrary loan form, other's will just record the information.

* Allow at least two weeks to receive the item.

* Depending upon availability of the item, it may take longer.

* Usually there is no cost for interlibrary loans.

* If the item is available only from a library that charges a fee, the librarian will tell you of the cost before ordering the book.

* If you lose, damage, or keep a book overdue, you are responsible to pay the cost.
