When you can't find a resource like a book or article that Harrison College owns, you can submit a request to have your Harrison Librarians borrow the material from another library.  This process is called "interlibrary loan" or ILL for short!

All Harrison College students, faculty, and staff are eligible, as long as they are in good standing with the library.

You can submit a request for a resource two ways:

1. Ask your local librarian to assist you.

2. Or, even better, search in the Harrison's online catalog.  If you find something that isn't owned by Harrison College and you are eligible for interlibrary loan, click the "Get if for me" button.  Fill in the required fields. 

If you are an Online student who lives 30 miles or more from the nearest Harrison Campus, select Online as your Pick-up Location and include your address in your request.

If you take classes at a Harrison on-ground campus and live within 30 miles of the campus, you will pick up your requests at your home campus and do not need to input your address. Select your home campus from the Pick-up Location menu.

Your Harrison Librarians will request to borrow the resource for you after you submit your ILL request!  We will work hard to find the resources you request, but depending on the availability, we cannot guarantee we can always fill your requests.

We do not fulfill requests for current TEXTBOOKS.
