  • Interlibrary loan: service limitations

    From 23 October to 7 December, most of the libraries in the RERO network will not process interlibrary loan requests; the interruption is caused by the preparatory activities for the transition to a new management system. Whenever possible, we will try to retrieve texts via interlibrary loan from other libraries, but there may be requests that we cannot process. In such cases you will be notified; the request may be submitted again after 7 December.
