The Mount Aloysius College Library provides interlibrary loan access to the holdings of other libraries nationwide through a vast electronic network. This service is available to Mount Aloysius students, faculty and staff only. Although there is no charge for this service, costs levied by supplying libraries will be passed on to the person requesting an item. Every effort is made to obtain items from libraries that do not charge.
Most interlibrary loan requests are filled within a week to ten days although in individual cases the time could be longer. Plan ahead and place requests as soon as possible.
Interlibrary loan requests can be submitted either electronically or in hard copy. Request forms are available in the Library at both the Circulation and the Reference Desks and can be returned at each of these service points. Whichever format you use, it is a good idea to retain copies for your own records.
NOTE: Mount Aloysius College Library does not borrow or purchase dissertations for library patrons. Please use Dissertation Express in order to purchase a copy of a dissertation.
