Interlibrary borrowing

We can help you borrow books, articles, or other materials that Stanford does not have (so be sure to check SearchWorks or consult with a librarian first!). Check to make sure that you're eligible to use interlibrary services and that the materials are eligible to be borrowed.

Winter Closure 2016-2017

Processing Interlibrary Borrowing (ILB) requests and renewals submitted during winter closure December 21, 2016-January 03, 2017, will begin on Wednesday, January 4, 2017. (Please review RLCP pages for separate winter closure information.)

Green Library will be open limited hours during winter closure. Return ILB materials loaned by non-Stanford libraries to the Green Library main circulation desk. Request a return receipt. Do not return ILB materials to branch libraries or campus bookdrops. Beginning on January 4, 2017, materials returned during winter closure will be shipped to the various lending libraries.

Stanford RLCP and Interlibrary Services wishes everyone a restful winter break.

Return an item

Do not return Interlibrary Borrowing or RLCP materials through the book drops.

Please hand items directly to a staff member at Green Library's main circulation desk. Ask for a receipt. Alternatively, you can return items to the Interlibrary Services office, Room 161, Green Library.

Allow at least five working days before the due date so that the item is returned to the lending library on time. You're responsible for fines and fees the lending library charges for overdue, lost, or damaged items.
