Latest service and space updates: VCU Libraries COVID-19 response

Plan Ahead: Request Interlibrary loans and deliveries now

October 30, 2020

VCU Libraries' Interlibrary Loan and Delivery Services will not be provided during the VCU Winter Break Dec. 19-Jan. 3, 2021.  

The time required to obtain materials from other institutions increases greatly during December and January due to Winter breaks, holiday mail volume and increased end-of-semester workloads. Many libraries do not lend at all from mid-December through mid-January. Some requested materials may not be available until January 2021. Therefore, it is very important for users to make requests as soon as possible.

Should an Interlibrary Loan item become due while the libraries are closed, borrowers may keep and return materials when the office opens Jan. 4, 2021. Borrowers will not incur any overdue fees for these materials that are due during the VCU Winter Break. 

Questions or concerns? Contact Resource Sharing and Delivery at or (804) 828-1115 prior to Winter Break.
