If you are a current student, staff, or faculty member looking for books or journal articles that the RIT Libraries at the Wallace Center do not own, you can request the material through Connect NY or Interlibrary Loan.
Connect NY is the combined online catalog of 17 participating academic libraries in New York State. Through Connect NY, patrons can borrow books not owned by RIT Libraries, as well as books owned by RIT Libraries that happen to be checked out. Any available book can be requested through Connect NY, and they are usually received within two to four working days.
Through Interlibrary Loan, also known as IDS Express (Information Delivery Services), library users are able to borrow materials not currently in our collections (see below for details). ILL requests can be made online.
