Requesting an item from another library.

If you have searched for a book in our Online Catalog and we do not have it, please access the WorldCat database on the left side of screen. Search for the book and once you have found a record or records for it, select the record with the most holdings. Then select the ILL tab to enter your information in the request form. Don't forget to press "submit."

 

If you are searching for an article, use the ArticleFirst database on the left side of the screen. (NOTE: If you can't find your article in ArticleFirst, you may need to use WorldCat and search the name of the journal.) Select the record with the most holdings. Note if that record selected has the correct date of the article you are seeking. Then select the ILL tab and enter your contact information and then make sure you enter the citation of the article in the comments section of the request.

Please be aware that these items may take 7 to 10 days to arrive at LMC so give yourself plenty of time if you need items by a certain date.
