Each year we receive tens of thousands of lending requests from nearly 2,500 libraries for Virginia Tech-owned materials.
Libraries and other organizations should submit your requests through OCLC (symbol VPI), DOCLINE, or standard ALA ILL form (sent to us by mail or fax). You may also submit requests via ILLiad web-based accounts by contacting our Lending unit at 540-231-3044 or emailing us.
Virginia Tech (VPI) has transitioned to online-only instruction, and as a result our library has reduced its hours and services. Interlibrary Loan will not be able to fulfill requests for loans/print materials. We continue to fill requests from ejournals and scans of print resources.
Per the VIVA and ASERL guidelines, we will cease shipment of all outgoing materials to both lending and borrowing libraries.
We are working to cancel all outstanding borrowing requests that have not already been shipped by the borrowing libraries. If you encounter any that we have not already cancelled, please ignore them.
Thanks to everyone for their help as we work through this crisis.
