Borrow Direct service now extends to University of Chicago

As of July 31, users of the Yale University Library’s Borrow Direct service can request circulating materials from the University of Chicago Library. In addition to providing access to materials in the libraries of all eight Ivy League institutions (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Penn, Princeton, and Yale), Borrow Direct now includes access to non-Ivy libraries, Chicago and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Borrow Direct is extremely popular with library users at all ten participating institutions, who appreciate the ability to easily search across all ten library catalogs and the quick turnaround time to receive requested materials. Over the past twelve months, the average time from when a Yale user requested an available item through Borrow Direct until they received it was just 3.78 days. During the same time period, Yale Library users requested and received 40,208 items from our Borrow Direct partners. For additional information about the expansion of Borrow Direct to include the University of Chicago, please contact Ken Crilly Kendall.crilly@yale.edu.
