Lending to Non-Harvard Libraries
Cabot Science Library Interlibrary Loan
1 Oxford Street
Cambridge, MA 02138 USA
Harvard College Library loans or photocopies materials to institutions worldwide. Requests should be sent via OCLC or our ILL Account Request Form. The lending period is four weeks with the possibility of one renewal.
The following items are not available through ILL: computer manuals, materials published within the last two years, serials/periodicals, reference materials, and rare or vulnerable materials.
There is a basic fee of $25 for interlibrary loan or photocopying services. Loans to libraries outside the U.S. are $45 and copies $25. This covers up to four volumes or photocopied material up to 50 pages. Costs may be higher if a large amount of photocopying or special handling is needed. Payment via OCLC ILL Fee Management (IFM) is preferred, or invoices will be forwarded after the ship date. If paid by invoice, payment must be made by check or money order in U.S. dollars.
Please note that each Faculty library at Harvard University has its own Interlibrary Loan office. Requests for materials held by a Harvard library other than Cabot Science Library should be sent directly to that library.
