Request an Article
Librarians will send you an electronic copy of an article. This can take between a few days to two weeks on average. Please provide as complete a citation as possible.
Request a Book, CD, or DVD
Librarians will place a book, CD or DVD on the hold shelf for pickup or request a book from another Minuteman library.
Request an Interlibrary Loan
Librarians will place a request for materials from a library outside the Minuteman Network (usually from a college library). The material requested must be at least 1 year old.
