Interlibrary Loan Online Forms
Interlibrary Loan services are available to all current Springfield College students, faculty, and staff. These services provides national and international access to books and articles not owned by Babson Library but needed for research or study. Please allow 10-14 days for your item to be received. When possible, articles will be sent via e-mail and should arrive more quickly.
Unfortunately, we cannot request current textbooks through Interlibrary Loan. Like our library, most libraries do NOT loan current textbooks through ILL. In addition, the loan period for an ILL book is two weeks to one month, well shy of the semester students need. Please either buy your textbooks or ask your professor to place a copy on Reserve for your class to use.

The copyright law of the United States Title 17, United States Code governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable of copyright infringement.
This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
