Library Does Not Have What I Need


Is it available from another FLO library?

If yes, and you have an existing Library account, you may request that copy and have it delivered to either the Sherrill or Moriarty Library for pick-up (4-7 business days transit time):

  • Search for book title in FLO catalog.
  • Click on the title to open the record.
  • Click on “Make a Request” (under “Actions” on right-side of screen).
  • Login using your Lesley ID card’s barcode or student ID number, and last name.
  • Click on “Request from other library" (even if it is one of our copies).
  • Be sure to “Choose your pick-up library” (only Sherrill or Moriarty) using the drop-down menu.
  • Click “Submit.”

Check this list of available FLO and Other Local Libraries for other borrowing options with your Lesley ID.

Undergraduate students should contact a Research Librarian for assistance finding similar materials.

Master’s students, PhD students, staff, and faculty may request the item through ILLiad, our other interlibrary loan service:

  • Log into ILLiad with your Lesley account.
    • First-time users must register after logging in.
  • ILLiad items usually arrive in 3 days to 2 weeks or more. Each ILLiad request is sent to a string of up to 10 lending institutions. Each institution has up to 4 business days to respond (weekends and holidays excluded) to the request. A request could therefore take up to 31 calendar days to move through an entire lending string.
  • For more information on using ILLiad, visit our Interlibrary Loan page.



Articles and Book Chapters

If you need an article or material other than a book, and what you need cannot be found in our physical or electronic collections, you may be eligible to get the resource through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan (ILL) service. Please visit our ILL Guide for policies and instructions on how to place a request.

Undergraduate students should Ask Us for assistance in finding similar materials before placing an ILLiad request.



Ask Us to help you find similar resources available now if you're short on time or can't use ILL.
