1. We Ran Out of Resources
We could not find a library willing to lend us the item. Requests for a dissertation/thesis are also very hard to retrieve.
2. The Item is Too New
Many libraries will not lend new items and some do not even have the item in hand yet. Items published in the past 6-12 months are difficult to obtain.
3. We Could Not Meet Your Deadline
In many cases, patrons submit a "desired" date instead of an actual "need by" date which may result in not getting the materials.
Our library policy prohibits borrowing course materials for your classes.
5. Inaccurate Citations
A citation that is lacking required information or contains conflicting elements may be cancelled if we cannot verify what is being requested.
NOTE: Copyright Issues
We are limited to how many articles we can fulfill for our patrons by copyright law and we may have to cancel a request from time to time to comply.
