Interlibrary Loan Information and Policies
During the school year, we receive MaineCat deliveries on Tuesdays and Fridays. Once you request an item, it generally takes about five business days to arrive. We will notify you by email when your item is available for pickup.
Students are allowed a maximum of ten MaineCat/Interlibrary loan books at any one time. Faculty and staff are allowed a maximum of twenty. MaineCat will deny requests over these limits. There are no renewals for MaineCat items.
Many articles are delivered electronically. In the case of books and other loaned items, we will notify you by email when your item is available for pickup.
Tip: Libraries are often reluctant to loan cds, dvds, videos, and other multimedia, however, we will try to obtain these resources for you if needed.
If books are returned after billing, the library will attempt to obtain reimbursement for the borrower, but this is entirely dependent on the policies of the lending library. Please be aware that materials requested by you, yet lost in the mail on the way to Nutting Memorial, will be billed to your account; you assume this risk when you request an item. Items lost on the way back to the lending library, after they have been used by you, will be covered by Nutting Memorial. All materials must be returned by the end of the semester.
