Home : Library : Interlibrary Loan

    Archabbey Library patrons are able to borrow books and articles from other libraries. In most cases, books can be borrowed from another library for one month. Books can take up to two weeks from the time of request to arrive. Articles are usually copied from journals and emailed or faxed to Archabbey Library. Renewals are sometimes possible and should be requested at least one week before the book is due.
    To request a book through Interlibrary Loan, please fill out the form below. For books, include author and publisher. Any other information, such as the year and place of publication, can be helpful. For journal articles, in addition to the article title and author, submit the journal title, volume and issue number, and page numbers.

    Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
    The copyright law of the United States (Title 17,United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of the specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate the copyright law.

    I agree to comply with these restrictions.
