Do I have to pay for an interlibrary loan?
When you fill out the interlibrary loan form, you will notice that there is a space for you to enter the "Maximum Cost you are Willing to Pay."
We try all avenues to see if we can get the item to you for free. If the item you are requesting is rare or not locally available, it may not be possible for us to obtain a copy for free. This is why we ask how much you would be willing to pay; if the cost of the loan is within your range, we can still get the item for you.
You are encouraged to fill this space with "zero" if you do not wish to have to pay for the item.
Interlibrary loan services are available only to DC students, faculty, and staff.
