The Interlibrary Loan system should be used as a final resort to find needed materials. We urge students to focus their research in order to limit Interlibrary loan request to only those materials most needed. Many of our online databases contain abstracts or summaries of the articles. It is recommended that students read the abstracts carefully in order to determine if the article is appropriate for the research topic.

Any questions? Please e-mail the Interlibrary Loan Dept. at or call 718 488-1679. The InterLibrary Department is located on the 4th floor of the Library.

A limit of 10 Interlibrary Loan books per user may be checked out of the library.
