Q. Can I request textbooks through Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan is available for borrowing items that supplement learning, teaching, or research, not for general course study materials such as textbooks. Attempts to borrow current editions of textbooks normally takes longer and are frequently unsuccessful. Also, Interlibrary Loan due dates are short and will not cover a full semester use.
Instead, we recommend purchasing or renting your textbooks. You can also ask your instructor to put your textbook on course reserve in the library.
