About Requesting Items (Interlibrary Loan)

If you need an item that Babson Library does not own, we will borrow a copy for you from another library or (sometimes) purchase it ourselves.

Articles you request will be electronically delivered to your request system account. You will receive an email when they are available for download.

Books and videos you request will be delivered to the library Information Desk. You will receive an email when they are available for pickup. Return items to the library Information Desk.

Note that we can not request course textbooks.

School of Professional and Continuing Studies, Faculty and Staff

Students, faculty and staff in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies may request books and videos owned by Babson Library.

We will ship the requested items to you via UPS 2nd Day Air.

A prepaid UPS return label will be provided with the item(s) you request.

To return borrowed items, wrap them securely, affix the return label to the top of the package, and drop it off at your nearest UPS location.

You may also request items owned by Springfield College.

Babson Library Guests

Interlibrary loan is not available to guests. Only current Springfield College students, faculty, and staff may use this service. Please see our Guest Use of the Library page for information about document delivery services available through the Massachusetts Library System.
