I’m an Alumni of Stevens, can I use the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Services Department?

Alumni should first refer to their local public library for Interlibrary Loan services. 
Alumni are eligible to use the library's Interlibrary Loan services to request books from other libraries, however, Interlibrary Loan books CANNOT be taken out of the library.  They are free to read the books at the library  and when picking up the book, the alumni will need to leave an ID at the front desk until the ILL book is returned. We will keep the book at the circulation desk for 3 weeks before returning the book to the lending library. The cost of book request will be the cost we are charged from the lending library (up to $25); if the book is free to send us, then the book will be free to the alumnus. 
Alumni can also make use of the library's Document Delivery services to request articles. The cost for documents are as follows:
  • Regular Request - $10.00 fee plus the cost of the document
  • Rush Request - $20 plus the cost of the document
  • Dissertations - $50.00 per request
Alumni can use the paper forms for both of these services and drop the form, proof of Stevens affiliation, and payment to the library, or send the information and payment to: The S.C. Williams Library, Castle Point on the Hudson, Attn: Mary Ellen Valverde, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
Please contact the Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services Librarian if you have questions about Alumni Services.
