Library Loan Instructions

Types of Requests

There are 3 types of requests:

  • Book
  • Journal Article/Book Chapter
  • Other

Please fill out enough information for us to be able to find the item you need.

For instance, if we can't figure out which Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew you are asking for because you didn't include an author, we will email you for more information!
