Finding Materials Outside the Samford University Library
Other Local Libraries
Another option is to use the cooperative borrowing agreements that Samford has with other local libraries and check books out and use other materials from another Birmingham area library.
To find out what these other libraries own, you can use a database called
Search WorldCat for the material you want and click on the Libraries Worldwide or
Libraries worldwide that own item link for the record you are interested in.
This will give you a list of libraries that have this item, including Samford. Any
Alabama libraries will be listed first, and you can look to see if one of the libraries
from the cooperative borrowing list has the item. If they do, you can go to that
library and check-out or photocopy the item you need.
