The Library at the Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville

Borrowing Services

Though we house no collection on campus, LR students can order books and articles from the Hickory campus or order from other libraries via interlibrary loan (ILL).

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

To order resources:

  1. Visit the LR libraries' Interlibrary Loan page.
  2. Click the "ILL Site" link to get to the ILL portal.
  3. Use your myLR username and password (the same credentials to access Canvas) to get access your account.
  4. When requesting materials, be sure to enter as much of the citation as possible. Include: article or book title, author, volume, issue, and page number as applicable.
  5. Be sure to specify your campus (Hickory, Asheville, or Columbia) in the Comments section.

You should receive articles electronically within 3-4 days. Books and other physical materials will usually be available at the Asheville library office within 1-2 weeks. A librarian will notify you of its arrival. You will need to pick up these items when an Asheville librarian is on duty (please see the "Asheville Librarian Hours" tab). Return the item at any time (on time) to the return box just outside the library office, or return your book directly to an Asheville librarian.
