What Can I Request?
Many types of items can be borrowed. Books are usually borrowed in print copy. Newspapers are usually provided in micro-form covering multiple weeks. Journal articles are sent as photocopies or digital copies.
Media items: DVDs, CDs, etc, can be ordered, but may take longer to arrive.
Dissertations and theses are provided in print copy or in microform, if we can get them. See the section on Theses and Dissertations From Other Institutions for more details and options.
Materials usually not available for loan include: rare or fragile items, such as manuscripts, reference books, genealogical materials, new books, electronic resources such as databases, computer files, and ebooks. If in doubt, request the material and we will let you know if we can't get it.
