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

Most of the library's databases will provide a Looking for Full Text? link on results that don't provide PDF full-text.  If that Looking for Full-Text? link fails, you'll see a blue button for Request this Item through LVC Tipasa.

You can also request a book via interlibrary loan 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.
