Collaborative Access and Borrowing Partnerships: BorrowDirect / Ivies Plus

Dartmouth has partnered with BorrowDirect institutions to launch an on-site borrowing and access agreement. Under this agreement, called BorrowDirect Plus, Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff will have free on-site access to the partner libraries as well as the ability to borrow directly from those libraries. For more information, please see the following two resources:
Collaborative Access and Borrowing

Resource Sharing Services offers several options for providing access to materials held in our collections or obtaining materials available from other libraries or sources.

Borrowing Material that Dartmouth Does Not Own

Borrow Direct Logo

BorrowDirect enables faculty, students and staff at Dartmouth College, and DHMC physicians, residents, and staff with Geisel faculty appointments to search and directly request materials from the combined catalogs of Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth,Duke University, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Yale and the Center for Research Libraries, a collection of over 60 million volumes, and directly request expedited delivery of circulating items.  Princeton and  University of Chicago also loan select media items to the Borrow Direct consortium. Materials are generally delivered within 3-5 days and may be used for 56 days with one 56 day renewal.


DartDoc Logo

DartDoc is Dartmouth College Library's system for requesting documents (books, articles, patents, etc.) for your research. DartDoc includes what is traditionally known as “interlibrary loan” for borrowing materials from other institutions for any registered borrower. Initial loans are generally 30 days with one possible renewal.

On-Campus Delivery of Dartmouth Library Materials

Faculty, staff and PHD candidates may use the "Request Selected Item"or DartDoc feature in the online catalog to request items from the collections to be delivered to a choice of libraries on campus. Articles and book chapters will be delivered electronically unless otherwise requested.

Undergraduates, graduate students, and registered borrowers may use the"Request Selected Item" or DartDoc feature in the online catalog to request books and journal articles from two off-campus locations, the Storage Library and the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library. Articles and book chapters will be delivered electronically unless otherwise requested.
