Inter-Library Loan

Inter-Library Loan is available to faculties, students and staff of the University to obtain materials that are needed but are not owned by ECSU library. These materials can generally be borrowed from other libraries at no cost to the borrower. A request form for materials needed on loan can be obtained from the circulation desk. Sometimes the lending library may charge a fee for photocopies. In this instance, the user who requests the material would be responsible for paying the fee.
