Welcome to the resource sharing site for Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. This is where you need to go for learning how to submit InterLibrary Loan (ILL) requests, place a hold on a book, or request an article. Please take some time to thoroughly read how resource sharing works at Gordon-Conwell and the policies that govern that sharing at your respective campus. If you have any questions, please email the ILL Staff at email@example.com.
Here are 4 non-negotiable qualifications you need to meet in order to use resource sharing at GCTS:
1. Be a current student, staff, or faculty member.
2. You must have your Patron ID card with you at the time of pick up. (For students this is your student ID card; for staff/faculty this must be whatever was used to create your library account such as your driver's license, old student ID, or guest card).
3. You must read and sign the Overdue Book Policy and have this confirmed by the library staff.
4. You may not have any outstanding fines or overdue books on your library account. If you have either of these at the time that the library processes your ILL request, you will be contacted by email and be required to set your account in order before they can proceed with your requests.
Like all things in seminary, even the library has its own set of terms that you will want to be familiar with. As far as resource sharing goes, there are three terms/types of requests you should be aware of.
For an overview of how the resource request process works, take a moment to view the info graphic below. If you have an questions, contact the ILL librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
