Finding Out What Other Libraries Have

Your local public library may be convenient to use. 

Other state university libraries often welcome BSU students too.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Services

You may request Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services from Maxwell Library. For off-campus services, this includes materials found within the Maxwell Library as well as materials from other libraries. Requests may be made by completing an ILL/DDS Request Form. There are no charges for off-campus document delivery of resources. Off-campus students are entitled to up to fifteen ILL/DDS requests per semester. Additional requests must be approved by the Head of Access Services.

Receiving Books/Articles

Material available at Maxwell Library should take approximately one week from the date the request is received at the Library to the date it is received by the off-campus user. Material located at Wheaton College, Stonehill College, or the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth will usually take two weeks or less. Most other material should be received within three to five weeks. Books will be mailed to the address of your preference. Photocopies of periodical articles will be sent electronically or mailed to the address of your preference. Copies are generally yours to keep.

Returning Books

Returning books to the Maxwell Library is the borrower's responsibility. A return mailing label will be enclosed for your convenience. It is recommended that you save the mailing envelope for returning the book to Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services. You may contact the office for information if you have not received notification by the end of two weeks. Email: (Phone: 508/531-1706)
