PLEASE NOTE: The ConnectNY request system will be unavailable after March 11, 2021 in order to prepare for a system upgrade in the coming months. All other Interlibrary Loan services will remain operational and we will still be able to access the collections of ConnectNY libraries through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system. Please submit any ConnectNY requests prior to Thursday, March 11, 2021.
ConnectNY materials that are currently checked out to you and any ConnectNY requests received prior to March 11th may be kept until their listed due date. We look forward to going live with the new ConnectNY System in August 2021.
