Lending Materials to Other Libraries

  • Rare materials in Special Collections
  • eBooks
  • Audiovisual materials
  • Microfilm & microfiche
  • Musical scores
  • Entire volumes of periodicals

McFarlin is a member of OCLC's ILLiad and RapidILL. Our RapidILL service is limited to articles only.

In general, we only provide material to academic, publicgovernment or not-for-profit, full OCLC member libraries.
