Borrowing Materials From Other Instiutions

No library can possibly collect everything. If you need a book or article that is not within the holdings of the Stephen B. Luce Library, it may be possible to borrow the item from another institution.

  • SUNYShare - SUNYShare allows all SUNY Maritime faculty and students to borrow items from libraries at other SUNY campuses, CUNY, and regional partners through the Stephen B. Luce Library Catalog. Our regional partners includin Vassar College, West Point Academy, Ithaca College, and others.
  • InterLibrary Loan - InterLibrary Loan allows SUNY Maritime faculty and students to borrow items from other college and public libraries. InterLibrary Loan is only for items not available through SUNYShare. 

Items borrowed through SUNYShare and InterLibrary Loan will be available for pick-up at the front desk of the Stephen B. Luce Library. Please allow a minimum of two weeks for delivery.
