If the MLC Consortium does not have an item you’re interested in, our library can ask other libraries around the country to loan it to us, so we can then loan it to you. Material due dates and possible use restrictions are set by the loaning library, so how long you have access to materials may vary. Visit the Interlibrary Loan page for more information
