Materials & Interlibrary Loan

Articles and Book Chapters

Articles and book chapters will be scanned and emailed to you at no charge by our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services. Materials not available at Hollins may take 2-4 weeks to obtain, so plan your research early.

Books

Your local public library can borrow books from Hollins, from Roanoke College and many other libraries using Interlibrary Loan service; this is a fast, efficient and low-cost way to get the books you need.

Request Books by Mail

If local Interlibrary Loan is not available to you, we can mail books from the Hollins and Roanoke collections to your home. You will only be responsible for the cost of return postage to the library.

  1. Fill out the online request form*, AND
  2. Indicate your a distance graduate student and write your mailing address in the “Notes” section of the ILL request form. If you forget to write your mailing address, please email ill@hollins.edu.
