Interlibrary Loan Service

More than Interlibrary Loan

Request Interlibrary Loans, Articles, and Book Chapters

We continue to accept interlibrary loan requests for articles, book chapters, and physical loans. While there may still be some delays or limitations on what is available due to the pandemic, our services are near normal at this time.

Request Vanderbilt Library Materials

When you search the Catalog, sign into your account to see your options for document delivery. Faculty Delivery Service resumed, "Scan & Deliver" continues, and Graduate Student "Pull & Hold" services were launched with the Fall semester.

Suggest a Purchase; Get Electronic Access

It is possible that the Library can purchase access to an electronic version of the material you need. If you cannot locate an electronic version and urgently need the full text of a book, please logon to fill out a purchase request form.
