Peer Research Assistants: Interlibrary Loan Services

Interlibrary Loan Services

St. Thomas students, faculty, and staff may request (free of charge) books, articles, and other library material not available at St. Thomas from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan. Libraries nationwide cooperate to share materials, so you don't even need to know which other library has the material you want--we track that down for you.
