Should I Use CLS or Documents2Go?

Use the Consortium Loan Service (CLS) when available for book loans and physical AVs (DVDs, etc.).  CLS supplies the item for free from another Washington Research Libraries Consortium library and courier delivery to Himmelfarb is 2-5 days on average.

Use Documents2Go for ordering book chapters and articles when there is no full-text option. There may be fees associated.

For more information on our document delivery services, see the Borrowing from Other Libraries Research Guide.
