If you are looking for a specific item but cannot find it in the library’s collections, you may be able to find it elsewhere. Lyndon State College students, faculty and staff have borrowing privileges at the other Vermont state college libraries. In addition, the library can normally arrange for you to borrow items from other academic and public libraries, giving you access to millions more books and periodical articles.
Items at other VSC libraries
Use the VSC Online Catalog to search the libraries of Castleton State College, Johnson State College and Hartness Library (serving Community College of Vermont and Vermont Technical College).
First, use the dropdown menu to select Library:All Libraries when searching.
When you have found the item you need at anotherVSC library, click on “Place Request”. You will be prompted for your regular NetID (ex. xyz01010) and password. Follow the instructions to place your request.
Note: it is not possible to borrow ebooks from other VSC libraries. If you need an item that is listed at another VSC library as a ebook, you will need to follow the instructions for requesting an item from a non-VSC library (see below).
Items at non-VSC libraries
If the item you need is only available from a non-VSC library, follow this link to the library’s request forms: Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Be sure to select the correct form for the required format.
But! Please check the VSC Online Catalog (All Libraries) before requesting a book or other physical item from a non-VSC library. Please check (a) whether the item you need is available from a VSC library and (b) whether there is a different item at a VSC library that would be a satisfactory alternative. The library can deliver VSC items more quickly than non-VSC items.
To check whether the library has a specific periodical issue, please check the library’s A-Z list of journals and magazines.
For help checking the online catalog or the library’s periodicals collection, contact the Reference Desk in person, at (802) 626-6450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
