What is InterLibrary Loan?
Interlibrary loan is the sharing of library materials world wide. If you need a resource that McGovern Library does not have or that is currently checked out we try to get it for you! Physical items that you request will be sent to our library and will be available for you to pick up. Articles and book chapters are typically received electronically and will be sent to your email account as PDFs.
Learn More About InterLibrary Loan by visiting the InterLibrary Loan library guide.
