Interlibrary Loan via MLS

The Massachusetts Library System provides Mediated Interlibrary Loan for MLS member libraries. 
Interlibrary loan refers to returnable items that cannot be borrowed through in-network transfer, the Commonwealth Catalog, or Point-to-Point.
Participating libraries place and update their borrowing requests through the cloud-based ILL client, Clio.
