As defined by the Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States,
"Interlibrary loan is the process by which a library requests material from, or supplies material to, another library. The purpose of interlibrary loan as defined by this code is to obtain, upon request of a library user, material not available in the user's local library."
You know exactly what article, book, or other item you need.
The item is not available through Bristol LLC.
If you are unsure whether or not what you need is available, please ask a librarian for help. Using the chat box on the right is a fast way to contact us!
We go to all reasonable lengths to obtain materials for users as quickly as possible. These materials are ordered from other libraries across the country and it takes an average of 7-10 days for loan materials to arrive. Journal articles/ book chapters are usually available more quickly.
