Access to these materials is through the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) and their online database, FirstSearch. Interlibrary loan is a free service and anyone can request a book. The average loan time for a book is 5 weeks. Our library also obtains copies of articles needed as well. If you have any questions or need help locating a book, stop by the Interlibrary Loan Office. Requests may be made by completing the online Interlibrary Loan Request form; by fax (270-384-4188), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org); or by phone (800-264-6483, ask for the library; after 4 p.m. CT, select "1"). Kim Hamlett is the ILL contact (270-384-8253). If the interlibrary loan book has not been return by the end of the semester, your account will be billed $55 plus the fees from the lending library.
