Another way of gaining access to Library materials is with a LOUIS Reciprocal Borrowing Card. It's a way for active students, faculty and staff of Louisiana colleges and universities to borrow materials from other academic libraries in person. Please note that possession of a LOUIS Reciprocal Borrowing Card does not guarantee borrowing privileges from all Louisiana academic libraries. Policies differ from library to library, and the lending library has the option to honor the LOUIS Reciprocal Borrowing Card based upon the status (undergraduate, graduate, faculty or staff) of the cardholder.
The New Orleans Public Library is a great resource for materials that may not be available at Delgado.
The Jefferson Parish Library is another great resource for materials that may not be available at Delgado.
WorldCat is a catalog of catalogs. Search here to see which libraries own what you're looking for. This information is often useful for inter-library loan (ILL) requests.
