InterLibrary Loan Deadline – Tues. April 25th by 5pm

As the end of the semester is approaching, I encourage you to get started on your research, even if you're not ready to write your paper or project yet. Depending on your topic, we may not have many relevant books or articles, in which case you might need to borrow some items from other libraries.

If we don't have it we can get it for you! If it's a book you need, just look for it on WorldCat, and submit an ILL request online. If it's an article, print out the citation information from wherever you found it, and drop it off with a library staff member.

Just remember that the last day for student requests to borrow from other libraries is Wednesday, April 26th. Tuesday, April 25th, by 5pm.
