No. Interlibrary loan materials cannot be used as required or optional course readings, as the service is intended to provide individual students, staff, and faculty access to research material not available through Shapiro Library. It is a violation of copyright law to use an article, book, or book chapter obtained from interlibrary loan a replacement for course texts.

If you would like to include material not available via the Shapiro Library in a COCE course, please contact Learning Resources for more information and options.

If you would like to place an item on reserve that is owned by neither you nor the Shapiro Library, please contact your school’s library liaison to request a purchase.  Please note that it can take several weeks to complete book/media orders, so please plan accordingly.
