InterLibrary Loan - Tipasa

If we don't have an item you need, you may request that we get it for you from another library.

Once you fill out a request form you will receive an email when your items arrive; articles may be retrieved online via your interlibrary loan account, and books may be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

There is normally no charge for this service.  However, there are times when we are unable to locate a library willing to lend the item for free. In this case, Interlibrary loan staff would contact you to discuss payment of the corresponding charge prior to requesting the item.

Please use your Eckerd College email userid and password to register for an ILL account.
