Interlibrary loan is a service whereby a library patron may borrow books or receive photocopies or e-copies of documents that are owned by another library.
As a member of LIDS consortium, HU Libraries offer interlibrary loan services through renowned member universities. Interlibrary loan or resource sharing is made available for all students free of charge. To borrow material not available in HU, students, faculty, and staff must place a request with the assistant librarian who takes care of the borrowing procedure and notifies the patron upon the arrival of the item. HU covers the mail or courier service fee whereas the end user is responsible for overdue fines.
