For Harvard affiliates:
Interlibrary Loan borrowing is provided to any member of the Harvard community (faculty, students, and staff). If you need a book or journal article that is unavailable within the Harvard Library system, we will attempt to borrow it from another library.
You are encouraged to consult with a Reference Librarian prior to submitting a request. They can assist you in locating materials at the Harvard libraries as well as locating full text electronic resources to save you the time waiting for interlibrary loan (ILL) materials to arrive.
For more information about submitting an interlibrary loan request please see Harvard Library Interlibrary Loan.
