Interlibrary Loan

The library is happy to provide doctoral students with print research materials. Books borrowed from the Walsh college library have extended due dates to accommodate the research needs of doctoral students.

However, books and materials borrowed from other libraries have loan periods and loan policies that are determined by the lending libraries and are not subject to change.  Since interlibrary loan is a courtesy extended by other libraries, patrons are asked to respect due dates set by the lending library. Prompt return of borrowed items insures that libraries will not hesitate when loaning their materials to Walsh College Library.
