Borrow from another Library

Interlibrary loan requests using the library catalog or the fill-in ILLiad form now arrive just as quickly as items requested using WorldCat's FirstSearch interface or ConnectNY.

 

You may still use WorldCat's FirstSearch interface or ConnectNY:

    Note: Due to vendor configuration activities, ConnectNY will be unavailable from February 16 through mid-March of 2018.

  3. View the full record for an item you want.
  4. Select the "Request from Interlibrary Loan" link if Hamilton does not provide access to the item (see below).
