Items not Owned by the Sprague Library

Options if the item you want is not in the library collection:

  • Find Another Source: The library subscribes to over 30,000 publications and has over 400,000 books in its collection so the odds are good that another source that will do the job will show up if you keep searching.
  • If you are willing to go get the item from another library, call our Reference Desk at 973-655-4291 and our librarians will help you check to see if it is available nearby at a library you can access.  (For example:  Libraries at another state college or a public library.)

If another source will not do and you can wait a week or two, feel free to place a request through the Interlibrary Services Department.
