Register to use ILL when you need resources (books, journal articles, conference
proceedings etc.) the library doesn‘t have.  Takes an average of 3 days.

2. Connect NY  look for books that we don’t have but are available through the
consortium and delivered to Folsom in three to four days.  Can use this system if we have a
book but it is checked out.
