Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Information for Other Libraries

This page will help you borrow an item that the library does not have. Use it to get a book or article from another library.

COVID-19 Emergency Closure

Due to the COVID-19 emergency the Ray Howard Library is unable to lend until further notice.

Information for Libraries

Ray Howard Library lends via both DOCLINE (ID:WAUHMN), and WorldShare (ID:Z53).

Libraries that are not members of either may email us to verify availability of desired items, and place requests by submitting a completed ALA Interlibrary Loan form.

Course texts on reserve, reference, audio visual materials, and equipment do not circulate via ILL.

Due to limited staffing, we are unable to provide scans of long sections of print material.

We loan free to all libraries in the US.





Borrowing in-person at our library

If you can visit in person, and you are a resident of King county, you may apply for a Community Patron card.

Students and employees at Washington community and technical colleges who wish to visit us may also borrow directly from our library using their student or employee ID cards.

If you are not a King County resident or affiliated with a local college, you should place requests with your local public library
