1. Double check to see if we have it by searching the Catalog to find an item that we own. Then check WorldCat to determine if the item is available at other libraries.

2. Requesting an item from another library to be mailed to Reynolds Libraries (Interlibrary Loan): If Reynolds Libraries doesn't have the item, students, faculty, and staff can request it online via the Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL).

3. Checking out an item directly from a local library: The Cooperative Borrowing Program allows current Reynolds students, faculty, and staff to borrow library materials directly from participating academic libraries. Local participating institutions include: John Tyler, University of Richmond, Randolph-Malcon, VCU, VSU, and VUU
