Though The Bancroft Library is a non-circulating library, we do consider some interlibrary requests, such as microfilm loans and limited scans. UC Berkeley Interlibrary Services handles all interlibrary requests, mailing, and billing. Please contact them for more information. An Aeon account is not required for ILL requests.
Through Interlibrary Services, we offer the following:
We are able to loan up to four positive microfilm reels per request, so long as Bancroft holds the master negatives. We lend microfilm to university, college, research, and public libraries in the United States and to university and college libraries in Canada.
Limited Scans from Printed Materials
Due to preservation concerns, we can only provide scans of up to 32 pages of a printed item. Photocopies are free for requestors from any University of California campus. For all other requestors, the service fee is $17.00.
Please note: Duplication requests for manuscript materials and high-resolution imaging cannot be fulfilled through Interlibrary Services. Such requests must be submitted directly to Bancroft's Duplication Services.
