Getting books from other CLIC libraries

Cooperating Libraries in Consortium (CLIC) is a group of private college libraries in the Twin Cities Metro area that not only share a catalog, but also share books between them via a daily courier service.  You can request them through CLICsearch.

How do I request a book from another CLIC library?

  • Click on the title of the book in your search results, look at the "Physical Copies" section of the detailed record
  • Be sure to sign in, if you have not
  • If Bethel does not own a copy, or if our copy is checked out, check to see if another CLIC library owns the book
  •  If another CLIC library has a copy, click on the request link: 
  • Double check the information on request form that will pop up, and Submit your request
  • When you receive an email telling you that the book is available, you may pick it up at the BU Library's Circulation Desk
