/ INTERLIBRARY LOAN
If after searching article databases
and Find Journals @ RMU
you find that we do not have access to an article you need, request a copy of the article through Interlibrary Loan
. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is used to request articles not available at RMU, media, dissertations, conference proceedings and books not available via EZ-Borrow.
Most articles requested through ILL are sent to us electronically and then delivered to you via email. The majority of articles arrive in a couple of days, but please plan in advance and allow at least one week for delivery.
To request that a book, dissertation of other materials obtained through traditional interlibrary loan be renewed, please submit an email message describing your request and desired due date to firstname.lastname@example.org
. NOTE: we cannot guarantee the renewal of items borrowed via interlibrary loan, as renewal terms are the decision of each lending library.
RMU faculty, staff and students may borrow books at most Pittsburgh area college and university libraries, (with the exception of the University of Pittsburgh). Ask a RMU librarian
to assist you in obtaining the necessary documentation for this.
BORROWING FROM AREA PUBLIC LIBRARIES
We do not participate in any reciprocal borrowing agreements with local public libraries or vice versa, but -- depending on your information needs and time constraints -- the public library network
may be a great resource for you. Moon Public Library
is only 1 mile from RMU. Use eiNetwork
to search for library materials at any public library in Allegheny County.
If you have additional questions about borrowing books from other libraries, contact Bruce Johnston
, Interlibrary Loan Librarian.
