What is Tipasa?

  • Tipasa is a service that will provide you with materials that LVC does not own. 
  • Proceedings and PapersFirst  both provide a Request from LVC Tipasa link on each individual record.
  • You can also request a proceeding via Tipasa from the library's homepage (with the Request an Interlibary Loan link).
  • With Tipasa, you'll either get a PDF sent to you electronically, or a hard copy that will need to be returned.

How long does it take?

  • It depends.  If the proceeding is coming in through the mail, allow two weeks. 
  • If it's available electronically, it'll arrive within a few days.
