There are serveral approaches available to you.

  1. Local: Search the Library Catalog to find books, videos, audio, and other materials in our collection.

  2. Regional: Search Connect NY, a consortium of academic libraries in New York. Books are delivered within 3 business days. You need a current Le Moyne ID card to initiate a request for a book.

  3. National: Use an Interlibrary Loan form to obtain books not found in Le Moyne's catalog or in Connect NY.

  4. Global: Search Worldcat to see what libraries in our region and beyond have a copy of the book. It is sometimes possible for you to pick up the book at a nearby library.
