Document Delivery

Also known as Interlibrary Loans, the Document Delivery department supports the instructional and research needs of the St. Francis Xavier University community by borrowing materials which are not available within the libraries at StFX for use by students and faculty. Document Delivery also participates in lending our resources to other institutions.
