Interlibrary Services: Requesting Materials from Other Libraries & Document Delivery
The Interlibrary Services (ILS) component of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library complements the library's resources by obtaining research materials from other institutions for use by Fairfield University patrons. These services are available to current students, faculty, and staff of the University community as a supplement to the library's collection and include borrowing books, journal articles, audio-visual materials, theses and dissertations from various academic, public and private sector sources.
