Interlibrary Loan Form

Interlibrary Loan is a service provided to students, faculty and college staff to borrow from other libraries in the county, and elsewhere in the US, when the college library does not carry the item you need. It generally takes between 10 days and 2 weeks to receive a book or journal article if it is available. In some cases, there may be a charge for this service depending on the requirement of the lending library. For further information, please see our interlibrary loan policy.

Reference Books You Might Want To Consult

Don't forget about reference books when you are trying to learn more about your topic or put it in context. These are only a sample of the many dictionaries, encyclopedias, almanacs, and other tools you will find in the Library's Reference Department which can help you gather information about a place, time, or culture related to your research topic. Many also include suggestions for further reading. I blab more about how you might use these books in my BLOGPOST HERE. Call numbers are included in this list to make your search easier.
