Using Other Libraries

Visiting and Borrowing in Person

With your NU Husky ID you may visit any of our partner libraries, whether in the Boston Library Consortium (BLC) or other reciprocal partners. 

See special information about borrowing from the New England Conservatory (for music faculty and students majoring in music only).

We may be able to supply letters of introduction to other libraries, such as the Harvard University Libraries, if needed.  Ask a Librarian for assistance.

Accessing other libraries through OCLC Shares

Snell Library is a partner in OCLC Shares - a group of libraries and institutions from around the world. Need access to a library? Or need something they have through Interlibrary Loan? Check the list to see if they are there!

Searching Other Libraries Online

To see which other libraries have what you need, search WorldCat Local.  This shows which North American (and some international) libraries have the books, journals, media, and all types of materials you need. You may request delivery of many of these items from directly within the system.

Interlibrary Loan

To order materials for delivery, please see Request from Other Libraries
