The Interlending and Document Supply service is designed to support staff and students in finding material not held in the Institutes’ Library collection by making it available to them on request in the form of books and journal articles.
Journal Articles, Books, Book Chapters, Conference Proceedings, Theses, Government Publications and Reports.
Material Listed as Special Collections, Reference Material, Research Items, Theses (in certain cases) and Short Loan or Restricted Loan is not available on loan from any library.
The service is available to all staff and students who hold a current Institute of Technology, Sligo ID card. We currently do not charge staff or students for this service, the costs are incurred by the Library so please do not abuse the service.
You may use the Interlending and Document Supply service when the item you require is not available from the Institute Library Resources.
All requests must be submitted through the forms available on the Library website. Please ensure that you complete the forms as fully as possible.
We cannot guarantee a delivery date.
All notices will be sent to your college email account. It is your responsibility to check your email regularly and to respond as quickly as possible to all emails you receive. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
