Interlibrary Loan

You will almost certainly need to use Interlibrary Loan. You can request books using the "find it" button or links or you can fill out a form. (See the other tab, above, for details.)

Use your Gustavus account to log in. Then check your email. A link for downloading articles will only be live for a week, but you can keep the articles forever. Books will be sent here and can be claimed from behind the front desk once they arrive. You can't keep them forever, alas.
