ILL/Scanning/Delivery: ILL Policies

Non-circulating Items

We do not lend the following: reference materials, musical scores, software and computer disks, new books still in processing, items located in branch libraries (Kilby, Music Library), or items located in the Archives.

Special requests will always be considered. Give us a call or send an email if we have a unique item you're looking for. All of our non-lending items are open to the public and can be viewed in the library.
