Borrowing Materials via ILL

Interlibrary Loan supports the teaching and research of faculty, students and staff associated with Emmanuel College by obtaining materials not available at the Shaw-Leslie Library. One place to locate items outside of the EC library is to visit WorldCat, a collection of catalogs from university, college, and public libraries in the U.S. and abroad.

Before submitting an Interlibrary Loan request for a book, please check our catalog to see if we have the title in print or as an ebook. If the book you desire is not available, then please include as much information as you can on our ILL form. InterLibrary loans for books typically require a one-week arrival time.
