You will need to return materials by the due dates, and you are responsible for the return shipping costs. Please contact our Access Services Manager to place a shipment request.

We can make electronic copies of articles from the print collection and forward them via email. We will also forward electronic copies of articles obtained through interlibrary loan. Please contact a reference librarian at for more information.

What cannot be shipped?
