Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery: Electronic Books

Electronic Books

Due to publisher licensing agreements, it is currently not possible to borrow entire digital books through interlibrary loan, and we will attempt to find a print copy of the book and edition you need as an alternative.  Reference books, board review books, current year texts, archival materials and audiovisual materials generally do not circulate for interlibrary loan, so we would suggest that you submit a purchase recommendation to the library instead for these materials. Book mail delivery times may vary, but most libraries send packages by USPS or FedEx Ground, so they may be in transit for two weeks or more.

If you would like us to consider purchasing an electronic edition of a book for the library, you can submit a purchase recommendation here.
