Document Delivery to Other Libraries

Our fee schedule for libraries is as follows:

A.  CONSORTIUM  AND RECIPROCAL LIBRARIES, NON-PROFIT AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

No charge for interlibrary loan or photocopies.

B. NON-CONSORTIUM LIBRARIES AND COMMERCIAL ORGANIZATIONS

This policy applies to libraries with which we have no agreement. We charge what you charge or your maximum.  We reserve the right to refuse loans to libraries that are non-providers; these requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the accompanying fees will be agreed upon prior to the loan being processed. 

Minimum charge for document delivery:
$10.00 per citation plus:

  • $0.15 per page for books or journals
  • $0.30 per page from microforms
