Berry Library Interlibrary Loan

  • Though you will find many helpful books in the Berry Library Collections - print and electronic - you will often identify titles Berry Library does not own.
  • Do not despair! 
  • Berry Library can borrow books from other libraries for you to use.
    • Often, these books can be renewed.
    • If you should need them longer than the lending period, the Interlibrary Loan staff will be happy to request the book from another library.
  • The link above will show what information you need to supply. 
    • Key tips: For the question "The maximum amount you would be willing to pay should there be a cost to obtain the material," put 0.
    • There is seldom a charge for Interlibrary Loan materials. 
    • In the unlikely event that there is a modest fee, the Interlibrary Loan staff will always check with you first.
  • Word of advice: Have your Clipper Card ready.
    • The barcode on the back of the card is your Berry Library card number.
    • It is critical to making a successful Interlibrary Loan request.
