a. Please allow 2 weeks for materials
to arrive. Some items may arrive more quickly,
but you can't count on it.
If you do not have two weeks to wait for
items to arrive, please ask
a librarian for help finding rosources
in our library.
check the Library
Catalog or Journals
List before making a request. Please
do not request items we already have. You
may request articles when the available
full-text is missing tables, images or other
important information. You may also request
books when our copy is checked out.
d. Some items
may be difficult or impossible to obtain.
Examples include audiovisual materials,
archival materials, dissertations, recently
published or rare books. You are welcome
to request these items, but it would be
a good idea to have a "plan b"
in case we can't fill your request.
e. In many
OCLC FirstSearch databases you can see the
number of "libraries worldwide that
own item." Pay attention to this information;
the lower the number the harder it may be
to get the item. A very low number (below
5) may indicate a rare work or archival
item that will many times be unavailable.
