Borrow Direct

Borrow Direct is back – You may now request physical books via Borrow Direct and we’ll ship them to you (campus or US/Canadian mailing addresses only). See below for more information.

BorrowDirect is a service that allows MIT faculty, students, and staff to borrow materials that are not available at MIT from other Borrow Direct institutions.

Get delivery of materials to MIT via Borrow Direct

Search Borrow Direct to identify and request materials from Borrow Direct libraries and we’ll ship them to you (campus or US/Canadian mailing addresses only – other international users should request digital copies via the Suggest a Purchase form). Normally requests can also be made via MIT’s WorldCat – that service should be restored soon.

Ask Us if you need help finding materials.
