Borrowing books as a Distance Student: Interlibrary Loan
Borrowing materials from the Barry University Library
InterLibrary Loan (ILL) is the service by which books and journal articles owned by the Barry Library are sent to your off-campus site
directly from our Library. You can make ILL requests by completing an online form located in the Library homepage under the link
“Request an Interlibrary Loan.” Please remember that in order to enter this page, you must login to your BarryNet account.
If you want to request journal articles (not books), scroll down to the bottom of the ILL web page. You have the following options for
requesting articles:
1) E-mail delivery to your Barry E-mail account using Adobe Acrobat Reader (faster turn around delivery). Don’t forget that you have a
BarryNet account that already includes an e-mail address.
2) Pick up your article at the off-campus site indicated in the form.
3) Send article by U.S. Postal mail to your house or office (Please include home/office address). For options 2 and 3, you will receive
photocopies that you can keep.
MICROFICHE/MICROFILM: If you need a document that is in microfiche or microfilm, Barry Library will make a copy of this document,
and send it directly to you by U.S. Postal Service.
When the book arrives at the off-campus site, patrons must pick them up there. You must present a valid Barry student or faculty/staff ID
card to borrow materials. Under no circumstances will books be sent to patrons’ homes. If you borrow a book from the Barry Library, you
can keep it for 3 weeks, and you may renew it only once more. All books must be returned to the off-campus site by the due date.
When you can't get the item you need: Borrowing materials from other libraries
When the Barry Library does not own a particular book or journal article, you can request it through an InterLibrary Loan to be made to
another library. In this instance, the Barry Library will borrow it from other libraries using cooperative arrangements. You can make ILL
requests at your off campus site office by filling out the form at the ILL web page. When our Library borrows materials from other
libraries, it is important to bear in mind that the lender library determines delivery date. The loan period for books borrowed from other
libraries is determined by the lending library. Submit your request as early as possible as it takes 2 4 weeks for delivery. Please read
about requesting journal articles in the section above called "Borrowing materials from Barry University Library. "When the book arrives
at the off campus site, patrons must pick them up at the administrative office for the appropriate off-campus site. You must present a
valid Barry student or faculty/staff ID card to borrow materials. Under no circumstances will books be sent to patrons' homes. All books
must be returned to the off campus site by the due date.
