Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery

ALLEGHENY’S HONOR CODE EXPECTS STUDENTS TO NOT REQUEST TEXTBOOKS FROM INTERLIBRARY LOAN

Looking for something we don’t own?  Interlibrary Loan is a service through which you can request materials not available at Pelletier. If you want it and Pelletier Library doesn’t own it, we’ll try to get it for you. You may keep the articles we obtain for you.  The books and media materials must be returned to our lending partners.  Contact the Interlibrary Loan Manager, Linda Ernst, with your questions.
