Q. When do I use “Request Item” in the Five College Library Catalog versus Interlibrary Loan?

Use the "Request item" button in the Five College Library Catalog to:

  • Request items from the SC Annex and from the other Five College libraries
  • Recall items that are checked out to another user

Use Interlibrary Loan to:

  • Request items that cannot be requested via the Five College Library Catalog, either because the request is blocked or because the book isn't owned by any of the Five Colleges
  • Request articles not available online at Smith
