General Cost Information

The patron is financially responsible for any royalty fees as well as for any charges assessed by the lending library for loans, copies, fines, damages or lost items. No charges are incurred for materials borrowed within Alabama. The Marx Library also has reciprocal/no charge agreements with several hundred libraries across the U.S. Most other out-of-state libraries will loan books at no charge (except for dissertations) but will usually charge for photocopies -- typically a $10.00 - $20.00 minimum. We notify the patron of any ILL charges before submitting requests.

Payments:  Charges will be posted to the the library patron's account. Payments may be made at the Circulation Desk in person or by mail.  All payments are due by the end of the semester.

When to Use ILL

The Marx Library has access to a variety of databases, books, articles, and ebooks on a large number of topics. Occasionally, however, you will stumble across the perfect resource for your paper, only to discover that the library does not own this material. What do you then?

Use the Marx Library Interlibrary Loan service. We can borrow items for you from other libraries. See our complete policies and instructions under Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery.
