Alternatives to Interlibrary Loan
Other ways to get materials that aren't in the CIIS Library collection
- SF Bay Area Libraries
A nearby library may have the item you want. Check the local academic and public libraries in the Bay Area. Many public libraries offer great Interlibrary Loan services and/or Link+, which might be faster or more convenient than our services.
- Northern California Consortium of Psychology Libraries (NCCPL)
CIIS students, staff and faculty may borrow items directly from NCCPL member libraries.
Try also using WorldCat, which searches the contents of thousands of libraries simultaneously.
- ProQuest Dissertations and Theses
Most dissertations and theses from 1996 onward may be downloaded free (CIIS students, staff or faculty only) through ProQuest Dissertations & Theses. If full text is not available or you would like to own a copy, almost all U.S. dissertations can be ordered online on Dissertation Express.
- Dissertation Express
Order a copy of a dissertation that is not available for download.
- Copyright Clearance Center
If you are in a rush, Copyright Clearance Center is a commercial document delivery service.
Ingenta is a commercial fee-based document delivery service for rush situations.
