Attention: Bortz Library has resumed all Interlibrary Loan services, including borrowing and lending physical materials. Patrons may now request to borrow both electronic and print materials from other institutions. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, response times for physical requests may be slower as library staff continue to work part-time from home. Thank you for your patience.
Do you need to borrow a book from another library? With Interlibrary Loan, it is possible to borrow books, articles, DVDs, and more (all free of charge)!
Hampden-Sydney patrons can find materials held by other libraries by searching through WorldCat - a global catalog of library collections. Requests can be placed directly from the WorldCat search results. Enter your search terms in the WorldCat search box below to get started!
Tipasa is the software that Bortz Library uses to request items from another library. Every Hampden-Sydney student automatically has a Tipasa account created for them upon matriculating as a freshman. To log in to Tipasa, click on the link below and log in with your standard H-SC email username and password. If you have trouble logging in or have questions about your account, please contact the library.
