During the COVID-19 crisis, we have suspended the borrowing of books from other libraries (as have nearly all libraries). You can still request articles, or chapters from books; but since most librarians are working from home, we can usually obtain articles only if another library has full text in a database and has negotiated a license with the publisher to supply articles on ILL, and book chapters only if the book is available as an e-book and a library has a license to fill. You are encouraged to request articles or chapters on ILL; we can’t guarantee we can supply them quickly, especially for older articles and books, but we’ll try (a few libraries are still scanning from print books and periodicals). If you’re having difficulty finding sources, you can e-mail the reference librarian at email@example.com to explain what you need (please be as specific as possible about your topic); he can help you look for resources available in GALILEO or in our e-books, or can determine which articles are most likely to be obtainable on ILL.
If you're a currently enrolled LaGrange College student, or member of the faculty or staff, you can request books and articles from other libraries on interlibrary loan (ILL).
You can submit ILL requests directly by EMAIL to Arthur Robinson, the ILL librarian. You can paste citations directly from databases.
Lewis Library's interlibrary loan policy is available HERE.
Before requesting an item via ILL, please be sure to check the library's catalog to verify that we do not have the item you're searching for.
