Borrowing Materials from Another Library

Interlibrary loan is a service that allows you  to borrow materials unavailable at Musselman Library from other libraries around the world. Articles usually arrive in 24 hours. Books may take 4-7 days.

Interlibrary loan is fully integrated into library databases via the Gett It button and MUSCAT Plus, the library catalog. You are able to make and manage requests through your library account in Muscat Plus. (No more need to log into ILLIAD.)

Watch for the "Gett It" button in databases. small button with the words Gett It! Clicking it will check to see if we have the item in our collection and direct you to request a copy from another library if we don't.


Once you have found an interesting item that's related (potentially?) to your topic, please submit it to the class form. 

You'll need to know:

  1.  A title (If it doesn't have a formal title, describe what it is.)
