Get

Interlibrary Loan, or ILLiad,  is a service that will provide you with books that LVC does not own. 

Most of the library's databases will provide an interlibrary loan/ILLiad link on each of the results you find.

You can also request a book via ILLiad from the library's homepage.

We'll borrow the book from another library for you.  We'll notify you by email when your material arrives.

How long does it take?

Books will take a bit longer (they have to come through the mail)--allow two weeks.
