Need a Book?

You may request a book found in the SLAC Research Library catalog by clicking on the "Request a Copy" link next to each book and filling out the request form. We will notify you when the books are ready to be picked up in the Library.  For your convenience, we can deliver books to your office or by interdepartmental mail. 

If you don't find a book you need in the catalog, complete a ServiceNow Request Form  or email us and we will borrow the book from another library on your behalf, or will consider a purchase of the book to add to our collection.  If a book you request is purchased, you will be the first borrower.

Need an Article?

To request an article, just fill out the Service Now Request Form or email the Library. We will do our best to obtain the article for you.


SLAC Library's loan period is a minimum of three weeks.  Please note that books on loan from other libraries have different loan periods, no renewals, and late fees if not returned on time.

Recalled books, whether SLAC books or books on interlibrary loan, must be returned immediately.
