Requesting Materials From Other Libraries: Interlibrary Loan

Use an Interlibrary loan form to request materials that are not in our own library, in Summit, or in CCRLS Public Libraries.

For more information about interlibrary loan, with a list of frequently-asked questions, see the Interlibrary Loan Information page.

From the Primo Library Search

You can expand your search to include articles that the library doesn't have by clicking the Include results with additional delivery time option.

A form will open in a new tab. The information about the article is already filled in; simply enter the information about yourself, accept the conditions of use, and click the Submit button.

From Compatible Databases

Some library databases, such as CINAHL, Education Full Text, and the Gale databases, have links that allow you to check for full text in another database.  Clicking the link will take you to a page that has a link to the article, if available.
