Document Delivery Services
This page contains comprehensive information for all off-campus library services. Please contact us if you have any questions. Content on this page includes: General Policies, Photocopying Policies, Book Loan/Delivery Policies, Circulating Materials, Non-Circulating Materials, Loan Periods, and Overdue Fees.

General Policies

Allow at least 7 working days for delivery because holidays and weekends may add extra time.
Please prioritize requests: we reserve the right to limit the number of materials provided to an individual and the right to prioritize requests processed.
Borrowers are responsible for all loaned materials: FEES will be assessed for overdue, lost, or damaged items. Unreturned items and unpaid fees will result in holds on Seminary transcripts.
Photocopying Policies

Photocopying services are provided strictly for non-commercial and educational purposes only.

Photocopies will be mailed by U.S. mail.
All photocopies become the property of the user and can be kept.
Photocopies of specific journal articles (not entire issues) may be provided.
Book Loan/Delivery Policies

Circulating materials will be shipped to residences via U.S. Postal Service.
Circulating materials are loaned for a guaranteed period of 2 weeks and then can be recalled by another user.
All materials must be returned directly to the branch library that loaned them. The band around the cover displays the lending branch.
A mailing label is included with all loaned materials for return via the U.S. Postal Service.
If you return materials close to the due date, renew these items in order to avoid overdue fees.
If you return items to the wrong branch, you will be assessed a $5.00 processing fee for each item.
Book loan services are not currently available outside of the United States.
