If you can’t find what you are looking for through Dexter Library’s resources, we may be able to borrow an item from another library. Interlibrary loan services are available at no charge to Northland College students, faculty, and staff. We cannot do an interlibrary loan for textbooks that are required for a class, or for items that are not related to coursework or research. For items not related to classes or work, use the Northern Waters Library Service. Community patrons with Dexter Library card privileges are not allowed to use ILL services unless they are willing to cover the total ILL transaction costs.
Before you submit an interlibrary loan request, it is important to check to see if it is owned by Dexter Library. For books and DVDs, please check our online catalog; for journal articles, check our access through Full Text Finder. Find answers to commonly asked questions below.
