Services for Faculty
Before using the Five College "Request Item" service or the Interlibrary Loan service on behalf of a faculty or staff member, you must submit a research assistant registration form. Print out the registration form below, complete both sections of the form, and bring it to the service desk in Neilson Library. You will be issued a proxy library card.
You may request Five College books on behalf of a Smith faculty or staff member, using your proxy library card. For Five College journals, journal articles, or books not accessible via "Request Item" (e.g., art and music books), see the next section.
Use interlibrary loan (ILL) to request materials not owned by the Smith College Libraries and not available via Request Item.
