Interlibrary Loan Participation

La Salle Academy operates according to the  LORI Interlibrary Loan Code:


3.4 LORI Interlibrary Loan Code

  1. Introduction
    1. Interlibrary loan is a service whereby a patron of one library can borrow materials or receive copies of documents that are owned by another library. Interlibrary loan service is essential to the vitality of libraries of all types and sizes as a means of greatly expanding the range of materials available to patrons. Sharing between all libraries is in the public interest and should be encouraged. Library of Rhode Island (LORI) members should make their interlibrary loan policies as liberal and as easy to apply as possible.

La Salle Academy's collections are available to all LORI members and the La Salle Librarians are committed to providing a prompt response to all Interlibrary Loan requests.  Material requests will be filled and shipped to the patron via the library making the request on their behalf on the next delivery pick up day of the week. Other inquiries will be responded to via fax or email.  The only exceptions are state and federal holidays and/or periods when the school community is on vacation or during summer breaks. See School Calendar.

Likewise, regular requests are made on behalf of La Salle Academy patrons. Students and faculty members have been instructed as to how to independently borrow RILINK materials.  All other loan requests require librarian support and are carried out in this order and with the support of the La Salle Academy librarians: 1) OSL members; 2) cooperating college and university libraries; and if necessary 3) the OLIS ILL Clearinghouse.



Three week loan period.  Renewals approved unless item is on hold for another patron.

Reference Materials



The La Salle Academy Library is responsible for the safety of the borrowed ILL material until it is picked up by the patron. At that point, the patron is responsible for any damage to the original item. The patron will be responsible for the replacement costs if an item is damaged or lost. The owning library’s lending period will be honored and the La Salle Academy librarians will communicate with the lending library any issues that may develop including damage and inquiries related to replacement cost.
