Help! Bertrand Library doesn't have a book or article I need for my research!

Follow these steps to borrow books and articles from another library at no cost to you:

  1. Search for the title of the book or article in WorldCat (the search tool at the top of the library homepage).
  2. In the list of results, click on the item that best matches what you're looking for (note that sometimes you may need to scroll down the list a bit, AND that sometimes you'll find a "review" of the item you want instead of/in addition to the item you're looking want the original item and not the review.
  3. Click the "Get It" button to request the item. You'll be taken to an interlibrary loan form that should be automatically populated for you.
  4. Submit the form.

You'll be notified by email when your item has arrived.

Books will be mailed and will be held for you at the Library Services Desk. Bring your Bucknell ID with you to the desk to check the book out.

Articles will typically be sent electronically, and usually take between 12 and 72 hours to arrive. Once you are notified that your article has arrived, download it right away. Access to the article within the system will be removed after around 30 days, so downloading the item will ensure that you don't lose access.

Steps 1 and 2 above can be challenging! If you have any trouble finding what you need, contact me. Finding things is my specialty!
