Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a service provided to MNU students, faculty, staff, and alumni.  If a MNU community member needs an article or book that the library does not have access to, the library will request the article or book from another library.  The Mabee Library processes all requests as quickly as possible, but it can often take up to a week to receive articles and up to two weeks to receive books from other libraries.  Please allow yourself plenty of time when requesting material.
