The next link under the Library group takes you to the Borrowing Services page. There are several ways to borrow materials from the Bellevue University Library and more than one type of borrower.  This page tells you all you need to know about each. 


If we do not have the book or article you need in our holdings, we can borrow it for you from another library through a service called Interlibrary Loan, or ILL.  Items may be mailed, faxed, or picked up on campus.  Journal articles may be delivered through email.  There is a small fee for this service and a few days processing time.  For more details about this service, click on Interlibrary Loan Policies on the Borrowing Services page. You can also find the link to the Interlibrary Loan Form there as well.


Distance students who are unable to come to the library may have library materials sent to their home or business address. We will also be glad to send materials to our Lozier campus. All current Bellevue University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community users are eligible for this service. You can find details about this service by clicking on the Outreach Services link on the Borrowing Services page.


Local students have another option when looking for a book not owned by Bellevue University Library.  Most academic Nebraska libraries allow students from other Nebraska academic libraries to borrow books directly from them using their valid student ID card.  For a list of libraries, click on Reciprocal Libraries; the specific policies of each libraries can be found by clicking on Reciprocal Borrowing Policies.


Those who are not currently enrolled students, employees, or alumni may pay a $40 yearly fee to become a community user with borrowing privileges.  If a community user should become a student within the year, they may present their receipt to receive a credit to their account.
