Lending Policies for Other Libraries

Cal Poly Humboldt Library shares its collection with other libraries via our Resource Sharing Program. Requests cannot be accepted directly from individual researchers or borrowers.

If you do not represent a library and would like to request interlibrary services from Cal Poly Humboldt, please contact your local academic or public library to place a Resource Sharing request for the item.

We accept requests via OCLC or Rapido via Alma.
