The Library recently implemented a new interlibrary loan system, Rapido.  This next-generation system allows for the efficient exchange of resources from throughout the world. With over 500 member libraries, Rapido has an impressive fulfillment rate of 95% and an average turnaround time of 11.2 hours for electronic articles and book chapter requests!!! Additionally, physical resources not available via MeLCat may be available through Rapido.

About Rapido:
Rapido is a discovery-to-delivery library resource sharing platform focused on user satisfaction.

  • Rapido provides a central location where users can find the materials they need with a frictionless experience for getting those materials quickly.
