INTERLIBRARY TEXTBOOK LOAN POLICY CHANGES

As of July 1, 2005, Old Dominion University's Perry Library Interlibrary Loan unit has ceased accepting requests for textbooks required for ODU courses. The text of the new library policy relating to acceptance of requests for ODU textbooks is as follows:

"Interlibrary loan services exist to supply faculty, students and staff with research materials not available at ODU. Interlibrary loan requests for ODU course textbooks available through the campus bookstore and/or MBS Direct online will not be accepted unless the bookstore's supply is exhausted. If the ODU Bookstore or MBS Direct supply is exhausted interlibrary loan staff will attempt to borrow a copy. However, such loans will be short-term rather than for the entire semester."

For follow-up questions or comments relating to this policy please contact Stuart Frazer, interlibrary loan librarian, at sfrazer@odu.edu.
