Not at RBC?

If you can't find the book you want at Richard Bland, here are some other options:

Borrow books from other academic libraries in Virginia through ILL. Search for the book title in WorldCat and then click on "Use ILL to borrow." Or, you can complete this form.

The Richmond Academic Library Consortium is a group of Richmond area libraries which have agreed to extend limited borrowing privileges to students, faculty, and staff of any RALC school. Pick up a RALC pass at the Library's front desk.

The Petersburg Public Library is just down the road and has a great collection. Also check out Appomattox Regional Library System and Chesterfield County Public Libraries.
