Libraries around the world have a long history of collaboration, and we love to help our users! LITS encourages you to take advantage of public and academic library resources, and we are grateful for our partnerships.
Your local public or academic library is a great place to access materials while you're away from campus. Academic libraries often provide library cards for local community members, and your local public library likely offers the same InterLibrary Loan service that LITS provides. If there are books you need or want that aren't immediately available at your local public library, inquire with staff there about InterLibrary Loan.
WorldCat is a shared catalog of books and other materials in libraries worldwide. Use WorldCat to locate materials at a library near you, and contact email@example.com or your local library if you need assistance.
LITS strongly encourages you to call ahead and inquire about services currently available at your local library, as their offerings may be impacted by the current public health situation.
