Option 1: Use InterLibrary Loan to have the item delivered here. We will request books, journal articles and more from other libraries. While this service isn't free, it's free to you -- give us a citation and we'll find it for you.
Option 2: Go to another library to find the book yourself -- necessary for archives and special collections. Notheastern libraries have partnerships with other fantastic local libraries as part of the Boston Library Consortium (BLC).
Really need a book or database at another library, ASAP? Try going to one of our partner libraries in the Boston Library Consortium, an association of more than 15 academic and research libraries located in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
