Need an item not available in Metropolitan State’s library collection?
Interlibrary loan can help. We will search for libraries that have what you are looking for and have it sent to our library for you to pick up. There is no charge for this service.
- Are you sure we don't have it?
If it is an article you are looking for, have you checked our "citation linker" to see if we have a subscription to the journal? If it is a book or video, have you checked our MnPALS catalog?
- Need an ARTICLE from another library?
Use this form to order articles from magazines or journals. Or, if you are searching within a library database and find an article that is not full text, look for a "check for full text" icon. If no full text is found, you will be given a link to Interlibrary Loan with the form filled out for you. Delivery times vary but it will usually take from 3-5 days to arrive if the article can be sent electronically. You will need the 14-digit barcode number from the back of your library card to process the request.
- Need a BOOK or VIDEO?
Use this form to order books, videos, or CDs. Delivery times vary but it typically takes anywhere from five days to two weeks, depending on how widely available the item is. You will need the 14-digit barcode number from the back of your library card to process the request.
