Books borrowed through Interlibrary Loan may not be put on Reserve or
borrowed for group use.
Since Interlibrary Loan is a courtesy, the
requester must take full responsibility for the item borrowed and must
observe restrictions such as "Library Use Only" which the lending
library may impose.
Vassar College adheres to the regulations of the
New York State Interlibrary Loan Policy, the ALA Interlibrary Loan
Code, the International Interlibrary Loan Code and the Copyright Act to
comply with the law and to maintain good will with other libraries.
