Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is a library-to-library lending service.  If the Providence Library does not have an item that you need for your research, the library can borrow it for you from another library.  Returnable items usually arrive in less then 5 days, but it's best to allow at least 10 days.  The lending library may send books via UPS, Fed-EX or USPS.  Articles are usually sent via e-mail..

Interlibrary Loan Book Request

Fill out the Interlibrary Loan Book Request form to order a book that isn't available at the University of Providence Library.   Your book will usually arrive within 5-10 days.  The checkout period is determined by the lending library and is usually 3-4 weeks.   Out of state students should contact their local library to borrow books and other returnable materials.

 

Interlibrary Loan Article Request

Copy the title of the article into the Library Catalog Search Box to see if the article is available from the library's resources.   

If the Library does not have the article that you need, request an Interlibrary Loan.   Most copies arrive in 1-2 days.
