Oberlin College Libraries' Book Tips: About Interlibrary Loan

About Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is the name of the service that provides students and faculty with access to books that are not available at Oberlin or through OhioLINK or SearchOhio. Interlibrary Loan also provides PDFs of articles from journals or chapters from books.  

Because we cannot predict if a book is available, how long it will take to get here, or how long the loan period will be, relying on Interlibrary Loan for access to books needed all semester is a bit risky.
