Interlibrary Loan/Documents2Go

Can't find what you need in Himmefarb's collection? No problem - we can try to get it for from another library! Just place an Interlibrary Loan/Documents2Go request.

If you are requesting an item from another library, follow these steps before placing your request:

  1. Check to see if Himmelfarb has a copy of the book, article or other item you are requesting.
  2. If you are requesting a book not owned by Himmelfarb, check the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) catalog to see if a local library has a copy. If so, place a request through WRLC Library Services for quicker delivery.
  3. If Himmelfarb Library does not own the item or a copy of a book does not exist within the WRLC, please use Documents2Go to request a copy of the research materials you need.
