Interlibrary Loan -Obtaining Materials From Another Library

Who Can Request Interlibrary Loans?

Our Interlibrary Loan service is available only for CHASE FACULTY, STAFF, and STUDENTS.

How Long Does it Take?

The answer is, it depends. If we have requested a hard-to-find item, and our request bounces down through a string of lenders, it could take four or five weeks for an item to arrive. If the first lender responds promptly, an item could arrive in three or four days. Some places are even willing to fax shorter articles.

How Much Does it Cost?

The answer is, it depends. Most other libraries will loan books at no charge, but there maybe a charge for photocopying. The library may need to charge for postage and handling costs.

What Restrictions Apply?

Again, Interlibrary Loan requests are limited to CHASE FACULTY, STAFF, and STUDENTS. Additionally, some items simply cannot be borrowed. For instance, libraries will rarely lend videotapes. Some rare items will never be lent. Each lending library sets its own policies for circulating materials, including the loan period, and policies are usually more restrictive than you're accustomed to here. Renewals are not always possible.

How Do I Request an Item?

You can request an interlibrary loan by stopping by the Circulation Desk.  You can contact Carol Bredemeyer, the librarian in charge of Interlibrary Loans - 859.572.5395.  You can also fill out this request online
