Services > Interlibrary Loan

The world is one huge library. We can help you get books, articles and other resources not available in Roane State Libraries collections.

Note: Delivery of items held at Roane State library collections can also be requested online.

A few guidelines:

Interlibrary loan service is available to Roane State students, faculty and staff only. Community patrons should ask their local public library about interlibrary loan services.

Delivery of interlibrary loan materials may take several weeks from the time you place the request.

Due dates are set by the lending library and will vary from item to item.

Interlibrary loan borrowers assume responsibility for care of the borrowed item and agree to pay any overdue, damage or replacement charges owed to the lending library.

You will be notified by email or phone when your requested item is available. If you have questions, please contact Robert Benson at the main library (865) 882-4553.
