What type of materials can I request?
Most libraries will lend materials that ordinarily circulate to their users. Rare books, reference works, current textbooks, eBooks, theses and dissertations are not usually lent through Interlibrary Loan.
The length of a loan period is determined by the lending library. Material may be renewed at the discretion of the lending library. Renewals should be requested at least five days before the end of the loan period. Failure to return borrowed materials on time may result in the loss of interlibrary loan privileges.
Notification and Pick Up
You will be notified via email when a requested item is available for pick up. The item will be held at the Circulation Desk for pick up (718-862-7743). Items that have not been picked up will be returned on the date they are due.
