General Info/Library Assistance
What other libraries are available if I live outside of the local area?
As a member of TCLC (Tri-State College Library Cooperative), Wilmington University students and faculty with a letter of introduction may access and obtain borrowing privileges at regional academic libraries. A letter of introduction must first be completed and submitted to the Library.
Students and Faculty who wish to make use of libraries with whom we do not have reciprocal agreements will need to make their own arrangements. Interlibrary Loan requests are an option in those cases. To learn more about our Interlibrary Loan service, click here.
If you wish to explore availability of libraries in your local area, use the links below to perform a search.
