 Important Information About Interlibrary Loan During COVID-19

  • Interlibrary Loan staff are working remotely and will try to fulfill all requests for materials that can be delivered electronically. Unfortunately, we cannot process any requests for borrowing physical material from other libraries at this time.
  • We encourage you to submit requests for the sources you are looking for, no matter the original format, and we will attempt to either find them online for you, ask other libraries to scan requested materials, or suggest alternate sources.
  • Interlibrary Loan books (they have a colored paper band around the cover) can be returned in the book drop outside the Young Library/Bass Hall.

See Library Services During COVID-19.

General Collections

If you are interested in obtaining loans or photocopies from the general collections of the Smith College Libraries, please consult the interlibrary loan service at your own academic, corporate or public library. They can send an interlibrary loan request to the Smith College Libraries on your behalf. With few exceptions (see below), Smith does not provide such service directly to individuals.

Special Collections

If the material you seek is unique to Smith College and is housed in one of Smith's special collections, you may contact Special Collections directly.
