VCU Libraries collects materials useful to its researchers, but no library can purchase everything. Fortunately, the VCU Libraries participates in programs that allow us to borrow materials from other libraries, at no cost to you. If you have found something through the VCU Libraries Search, a database, or even Google, and VCU does not have access to the full text, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. This service is free to all VCU members, and materials can be sent to your home or office at no cost to you.
