Borrowing from other libraries (Interlibrary Loan)

Items not found in the SRH Library collections may be available from other libraries through interlibrary loan (ILL). Current Lyndon State College students, faculty and staff and officially-retired Lyndon State College faculty and staff may use the SRH Library ILL service. Guest borrowers are directed to their local public library for ILL services. Guest borrowers are community members who are not employed by or not officially retired from Lyndon State College. Due to the cost of ILL, the SRH Library cannot make exceptions to this policy.

Before making an ILL request

Before making an ILL request, please check whether the item is in our collections. If not, please check whether there is an alternative item that would be a satisfactory alternative.
