The Library does not lend historical material in its original format; however, we do lend copies of journal articles; copies of selected manuscripts; books and manuscripts on microfilm (when available); and copies of films and videos. The Library’s interlibrary loan services are available only to libraries, not to individuals. Individuals who want to borrow NLM material should make a request through a local library. For more information see the Interlibrary Loan and Microfilm Sales Program pages.
