Borrowing from Other Libraries

Interlibrary Loan

Use Interlibrary Loan to request:

  • Print books that are not available at Tulane (whether not in collections or checked out)
  • Scans of single articles and book chapters not available in full-text online
  • Microfilm and other materials from the Center for Research Libraries

WorldCat allows you to search libraries around the world, including Tulane's. It's the best database to discover print materials that we don't have, which you can then request through Interlibrary Loan.

There are two different versions of Worldcat:
