Steven W. Atwood Veterinary Medicine Library - Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery

Penn School of Veterinary Medicine students, faculty and staff can obtain journal articles and books not owned by the Penn University Libraries. In almost all cases, there is no charge for this service. As a courtesy, veterinary library staff will retrieve items from other University of Pennsylvania libraries for Penn Vet students, faculty and staff, within copyright limits.

Submitting Requests:

Document and Book requests may be submitted by choosing the ILL link from PennText. Requests also can be made by filling out the Request Article or Request Book forms on the library webpage (or on the sidebar menu on this page).

Book Requests:

To request a book from another Penn Library/LIBRA, use the Request It link on the item record in the Franklin catalog.

For books not available at Penn (not owned, checked out, on reserve) we recommend checking availability in BorrowDirect, then E-ZBorrow. If neither service has the books that you want, please complete the Request Book form on the library webpage (or on the sidebar menu on this page).

  • BorrowDirect includes books from other Ivy League and Research University. Loan periods: One 6-week renewal in addition to 6 week loan.
  • E-ZBorrow includes books available from over 60 academic libraries in Pennsylvania and nearby states. Loan periods: One 6-week renewal in addition to 6 week loan.
  • Submit requests for books that cannot be supplied by either service using the Interlibrary Loan form.
Pick-Ups:
Journal articles
The Veterinary Library will post the articles you request on a secure website and notify you by e-mail when they are available. Articles will be available for 21 days. Downloading to your computer is recommended.

Books
Books may be picked up at the Circulation Desk of the library you selected for delivery (Atwood Library/PHL or duPont Library/NBC).
