We do not mail books to students. Students who are not located close to campus can use our Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) to request a pdf copy of a chapter in a book or an article that we have in print. (American copyright law restricts us from copying more than 1 chapter or 10% of a book, whichever is less.) Students in the local area can use our pickup service to request books in our physical collection. The Library has many ebooks that can be accessed from any location.

We have reciprocal agreements with many libraries across the US that allow Biola students to visit other libraries. The full list is here. Please note that the majority of the libraries in the United States are still closed due to COVID-19 and may not be accepting reciprocal students.
