If an item is owned by Mason but you don't see a request option (and it's not available through HathiTrust), you can email the Fenwick Circulation team to ask about other options, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need a book, article, or other materials that is not available through Mason Libraries, use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to request a copy of the item.
When searching in our catalog, you might see a note that a book is available through the HathiTrust Emergency Access Service. Please note: not all of our books are available through HathiTrust, so you will not always see this option.
