If you are requesting an item from another library, follow these steps before placing your request:
- Check to see if Himmelfarb has a copy of the book, article or other item you are requesting.
- If you are requesting a book not owned by Himmelfarb, check the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) catalog to see if a local library has a copy. If so, place a request through WRLC Library Services for quicker delivery.
- If Himmelfarb Library does not own the item or a copy of a book does not exist within the WRLC, please use Documents2Go to request a copy of the research materials you need.
