ILLiad: Borrowing from other Libraries

Is there something you need that the WPI library doesn't have? Our Interlibrary Loan service allows WPI students and faculty to request items from other libraries free of charge.

Borrow from Local Libraries

The Academic and Research Collaborative (ARC), allows member users to borrow directly from Worcester area libraries. Before you can borrow materials directly from participating libraries, you need to sign up for an ARC card in person at the Gordon Library's Information Desk. 

Note. Before you visit a participating ARC library, call ahead to check on their current visitor policy. Or ask a librarian, and we would be happy to call for you.
