Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)

Use ILLiad, FVRL's interlibrary loan system, to request material not available through the library catalog or FVRL's magazines and newspapers. Library staff may borrow the item you request from another library system or purchase the item to add to the FVRL collection.

Either way, you'll get to use the item through your local branch! See the ILLiad FAQs for more information.
