Finding & Requesting Books from Other Libraries

If an item is not available at Connecticut College, the item may be requested using the link that says "Request Book from Another Library (Interlibrary Loan)". 

WorldCat is a catalog of books and other materials held in libraries worldwide. Use this database to search for materials outside the CTW catalog, and place requests through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). It takes approximately eight days for an ILL book loan to arrive and two days for an article request to be delivered as a PDF. You will receive an email when your materials are ready for pick up or have been delivered to your account.
