The library offers students and faculty the opportunity to borrow materials not currently owned by the library through the use of a web-based service, Tipasa.
The library uses a web-based interlibrary loan system (Tipasa) to facilitate processing your requests. To utilize this system, you will need to set up a web-based account using your username and password. This is the same username and password that you use to access myMU and your Misericordia email.
Interlibrary loan requests will be submitted through this web-based system for articles, books and DVDs. You will receive articles through Article Exchange. Requests for books and videos submitted through Tipasa are available for pick up at the Circulation Desk.
Generally, there is no fee associated with interlibrary loan. However, some libraries may charge for lending materials. When submitting your request, be aware there are fees from non-reciprocal libraries for materials usually $10- $15. The interlibrary loan staff will contact you concerning fees before the article is processed.
Students, faculty and staff will be assessed a fine of $.25 per day for items not returned by the due date. A processing fee of $10.00 is added to the replacement cost of materials that are lost or returned damaged.
Requests will be processed in the order in which they are received. If you need further assistance, please contact the Circulation Desk at (570) 674-6231.
