Need a Book?

You may request a book found in the SLAC Research Library catalog from search list: by checking the box(es) next to the title(s) OR from the book record by clicking "Submit Request" from the menu below the searchbox. We will notify you when the books are ready to be picked up. 

If you don't find a book you need in the catalog, complete a ServiceNow Request Form   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. We will do our best to obtain the article for you.
