Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the system we use to find resources that we can't provide in the SVC Library. We can borrow books, journal articles, and sometimes even videos and other items. We have access to materials from academic and public library collections throughout the state of Vermont and beyond.

Request an Inter-library Loan


  • Requests can take up to 14 days to fill (although they are often much quicker) so please plan ahead.
  • Articles are yours to keep!
  • Book loans from other libraries are usually only 3-4 weeks long.
  • You will receive an email notice when your item is ready to pick up.

Borrow From Area Libraries In Person

SVC has agreements with a few other libraries in the area that allow you to visit in person and take up to five books from each place.

If you would like to visit one of these libraries, talk to an SVC librarian. You need one of our permission slips before you go! We can also help you find out if they have what you want before you get there.

Use the links below to take a look at their catalogs.
