To obtain a book or an article from another Fordham Library, make a printout
of the citation from the on-line catalog or database and take it to the Circulation
Desk at Rose Hill or Lincoln Center, or the Reference Desk at Westchester campus. If
the item is on the shelf at the other library, every effort will be made to
deliver it in 24 hours. You may also go to the other Fordham library to borrow
the item directly, using your valid Fordham ID.
Document Delivery Service for Faculty and Graduate Students
The document delivery service allows Fordham University faculty and graduate students to obtain e-mail delivery of journal articles not available electronically through the Fordham databases but which are available in print in the library. This service was established to allow faculty, and now graduate students, to request and receive research materials with proper copyright clearance via their Fordham e-mail accounts. We attempt to fill all requests in the order they are received. If resources are stretched, we reserve the right to limit the number of requests per user to 5 articles each business day (Monday-Friday).
In order to comply with the guidelines set forth in Title 17 of the U.S. Code governing copyright and fair use, the Fordham University Libraries will not reproduce and distribute electronically selections from books located in Reserve Collections or the General Stacks at any of the campus libraries. Patrons are encouraged to borrow books via established circulation policies from Intercampus Loans, Reserve and Circulation Desks.
