Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan requests will be limited to electronic materials (e.g. journal articles, book chapters) from other libraries and will be filled on a case-by-case basis, depending on our partner institutions’ availability during this time.

While Interlibrary Loan is normally used to request material from other libraries, ILLiad may be used at this time to request specific passages or chapters within Wiggins Library’s Reference and Theological Reference collections (Divinity & Christian Studies instructions), in keeping with copyright considerations.

Tech for Checkout

If you’re working from home without the cables or devices that you need, you can check out these technology items from the library. We are happy to extend the loan period on any of these items.
