Please note: It is not the intent of Documents On Demand's interlibrary loan service to borrow textbooks or course-required books in lieu of purchase.

Please do not order textbooks because:

  • Few university libraries purchase required textbooks, making these types of materials difficult to obtain.
  • Loan periods for borrowed textbooks are too short, generally around three weeks. These loan periods are set by the lending library, not CMU Libraries.
  • Failure to return items can result in charges for at minimum the full replacement cost of the item, plus a processing fee (from the lending library). Some libraries charge more than the full replacement cost. These fees are set by the lending library, not CMU Libraries.
