Genealogy and local history materials are usually non-circulating and not readily
accessible through regular interlibrary loan channels. Because of the difficulty
of acquiring, ODL does not refer these materials.
Referral to libraries inside
and outside of the state is the responsibility of the local library. WorldCat
is the source for locating genealogical materials.
Back to Interlibrary Loan Information
The Oklahoma Department of Libraries is the library to whom requests are sent for those items not found in local Oklahoma libraries. Requests are referred on OCLC to out-of-state libraries and the materials are sent directly to requesting libraries. No charges are levied for this referral service.
All requests referred to ODL must include libraries who've already been checked for the item. If there are no Oklahoma Library Technology Network locations, please note. ODL does not want to resend to libraries already tried.
All requests referred to the Department via fax or mail must be typed on the appropriate request forms, and two copies of each request must be sent. Include one request per form regardless of type of information requested.
Each request should be verified to the extent of the local library's ability. An ISSN/ISBN number must be included whenever possible. If no bibliographic verification is available, the citation or other verification should be provided.
If a request is resubmitted, clearly indicate that it is a second request and provide previous response.
Status reports will be provided for all referred requests.
