BLM Library: Information Within Reach

Interlibrary Loan

The Department of the Interior (DOI) Library provides interlibrary loan services to BLM employees. Please send your requests for publications, articles, papers, etc., to the BLM Library at We will provide items located in the BLM collection and forward a request for other items to the DOI Library. Through the interlibrary loan system, we have access to library collections of all types throughout the world. Response time for loans varies from 2 days to 2 weeks, with harder-to-locate items taking longer. The DOI Library generally does not borrow items that incur charges.

The length of an interlibrary loan is set by the lending library. Due dates can be extended if the lending library policy allows for renewals. To assist us in remaining in good standing with other libraries, loan extensions should be requested before the due date indicated.

Requests for documents or journal articles should include as complete a citation as possible. Also include your complete mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. Individuals are permitted five (5) requests per week.
