A guide describing how LCU students and faculty may use other libraries.

Using Public Libraries

Utilizing a Public Library:

  • Public libraries are wonderful resources for personal reading and often provide interlibrary loan services to their patrons. 
  • When a book or resource is available in your state, a local public library may be able to obtain the item for you more quickly and easily than our library can, particularly when you calculate delivery times. 
  • Some libraries may require a small fee for interlibrary loan items. 
  • Each student is encouraged to inquire what services are available at their local library.
