Interlibrary Loan materials should be returned to Musselman Library. To learn how to return library materials, including Interlibrary Loan materials, visit our Returning Borrowed Library Materials page.
Since some students will not have physical access to the library, MUSCAT Plus can be used to request chapter scans of books in the Musselman Library collection. For copyright purposes we can't scan entire books, but scanning a chapter or two (up to 10% of the book) is acceptable. If you are studying from home and would like to borrow a library-owned book on an interlibrary loan book, see the Access to Physical Resources instructions.
Finding book chapter information
Many of the books in MUSCAT Plus have chapter information. Search MUSCAT Plus, click on a book's title, and look for a Contents section:
