Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service provided by the library. We will borrow books and request copies of: chapters, articles and other materials (discretionary) that are not available in Stanley Library.
3D prints can be found useful in numerous applications, such as prototypes for entrepreneurs, architectural models for class projects and for any other low-volume, custom-prototype needs. For more information: https://libguides.ferrum.edu/3dprint
The interlibrary loan office is located in Stanley Library and is open from 8:30 – 4:30, Monday – Friday. If you have any questions, or if you need assistance, please feel free to by stop by the library or call 540-365-4420. Your ILL requests using the online forms can be submitted at any time.
Loan periods are established by the lending library but generally range from 4-8 weeks. Due dates display on the book straps or stickers on the front of borrowed books.
Electronic copies are forwarded to your email with a link and password. Articles will expire after 30 days. Download the files to your computer for continued access.
