Interlibrary Loan Policy
Interlibrary Loan is a worldwide cooperative sharing agreement between libraries that affords library users in any location the means to borrow materials not available locally from another library in the same state, region, country, or the world.
McGovern Library fully supports and actively participates in Interlibrary Loan activities in accordance with the following objectives from the Library's mission statement:
- To provide access to local, regional, and worldwide information sources.
- To support and participate in local, regional, national, and international networks that share resources and services.
- To make optimal use of human, financial, and physical resources in providing library services in an ever-changing environment.
Interlibrary Loan may be subdivided into Supplying and Requesting activities. McGovern Library's Interlibrary Loan Policy begins at this subdivision.
