What is Information Delivery?

Information Delivery enables the Brenau Trustee Library to borrow books or get articles from other libraries for your use. This service allows access to material not available at the Trustee Library.

Information Delivery services are available to:

  • All Students
  • Faculty Members & their Spouses
  • Staff Members

Types of material that can be borrowed:

  • Articles
  • Books
  • some Theses
  • some Dissertations
  • some Microfilm.

Types of material that cannot be borrowed:

  • Periodical Volumes
  • Recent Newspapers (not on Microfilm)
  • Reference Books
  • Rare/Valuable Material
  • Manuscripts
  • Audiovisual Recordings

While Brenau Trustee Library does not charge to use its Information Delivery service, some lending libraries do charge for their services. We make every attempt to obtain the item at no cost. On the request form, you can indicate the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item.

When Information Delivery items arrive, you will be notified by telephone or email. Material can be picked up and returned at the Brenau Trustee Library Information Desk by students attending classes or living in Hall County. All other students will have material mailed or emailed directly to them.

Request items for delivery

In addition to the link above, many of our databases include Information Delivery links for articles that are not readily available in full text. Articles can be requested while you are searching!
