Reagan Presidency and the 1980s in America: Interlibrary Loan

A guide created for History 285, Historical Methods: Age of Reagan

Interlibrary Loan System - Tipasa

Do you need to get an article or book from another library? Tipasa is the software system Bortz Library uses to request items from another library. 

Log-in to Tipasa using your standard HSC username and password. If you have trouble logging in, or have questions about your username and password, please contact the library. HSC patrons are limited to borrowing 40 items at a time (this limit does not apply to electronic article requests, but to hard copies only).

There are many advantages to Tipasa! For example:

  • You can sign up for email or text notifications, or
  • You can find information about the status of your request in your online account, and you'll no longer need to contact library staff
  • Articles will be electronically delivered to your account

The Tipasa log-in link is:  

Borrowing from Other Libraries

If the Bortz Library does not own a book or subscribe to a journal you need for your research, the library will borrow a copy from another library. There is an online request form on the library's Website.

WorldCat When searching for books or DVDs/CDs, WorldCat is the most efficient way to search and automatically request items from other libraries.
