About Interlibrary Loan and Reciprocal Borrowing

"Interlibrary Loan" is a cooperative process of borrowing books and journals from other libraries on request.  Contact the SAC librarian to obtain library materials for you. Interlibrary loan requests may take two weeks or more to arrive.  

"Reciprocal Borrowing" is a procedure that allows library users to check out materials directly from another library.  Not all libraries permit anyone except their own registered students, faculty, and residents to borrow materials.  Contact the SAC librarian for assistance.
