If Kistler Library does not have firsthand access to the research materials you need,
you can utilize Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request a specific item be borrowed on
your behalf. Most materials can be requested through ILL directly on WorldCat Discovery.
Click here to view a video demonstrating this process. You can also use the form below
to request books or journal articles.
We have reciprocal borrowing agreements with a number of area libraries, where you can also check out items directly in person. Rosemont College is a member of both SEPCHE (Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortium of Higher Education) and TCLC (Tri-State College Library Cooperative):
- SEPCHE libraries will lend materials freely to anyone with a Rosemont library card.
- TCLC libraries (and Villanova University) will lend to Rosemont students with a letter of introduction, which can be obtained from theInformation Desk at Kistler Library.
Local public libraries can also be terrific resources for materials not held by Rosemont. The Free Library of Philadelphia, open to all PA residents, offers the streaming video services Kanopy and Hoopla and the e-learning platform Lynda/LinkedIn Learning.
