Tip of the Week: Interlibrary Loan

Are you looking for a book or an article that is not in the Cardinal Cushing Library collection? Interlibrary Loan allows current students, faculty, and staff of Emmanuel College access to books and articles outside the Cardinal Cushing Library collection.

Access the Request Article/Book (ILL) forms on the Library home page under “Library Resources” heading in the center column. Make sure to select the appropriate form for either a book or article request, and then fill in as much information as you can. Every entry that is marked with a red asterisk is required, and other entries will provide our staff with additional information. When your item is available, you will be contacted via the email provided on the form. (Access the interlibrary loan policy on the Library home page under “Library Services and Policies” heading in the left column.)

Keep in mind that in addition to requesting materials, you may also visit Fenway Libraries Online and Fenway Library Consortium institutions in person for immediate access. A complete list of FLO and FLC institutions is available here: http://www.fenwaylibraries.org/.

Do you have more questions about interlibrary loans? If so, be sure to contact a reference librarian in person at the Reference Desk, via email at: reference@emmanuel.edu, or via phone at: (617) 735-9927.
