Borrowing Physical Resources

Due to the One Simmons renovation project, our physical book collection is temporarily inaccessible. However, you may use our catalog to identify and request items of interest. When we receive your request, we will submit an interlibrary loan request on your behalf and attempt to locate a copy from another library. If you have not already done so, please set up your interlibrary loan account. We cannot process your request until your ILL account has been established.
