Q

I want a book that your library doesn't have, can you get it for me? I am not COM student, faculty or staff and don't have a card.

Answer

Unfortunately, we can’t get Interlibrary Loans for anyone who does not have a current COM ID. There two ways you can still get the book:

  • Purchase the COM card. There are various levels and prices, and they are good for 1 year. Among other things, all levels   includes full library privileges.Get them at the Welcome Center at the gym.
  • Go to your closest public library. Sign up for a card for free if you don’t already have one and request the ILL through them. You can specific whether you are willing to pay for the ILL. Most libraries try to get Ills for free, but just double check. Use the link (below) to get a list of local public libraries form our Find & Get Items From Other Libraries LibGuide.
