Offers interlibrary loans? Yes

Interlibrary loan policy:

The majority of our interlibrary loan activity is to other libraries through the worldwide OCLC network. The Library charges a minimum of $20 or the IFM fee offered for materials borrowed. Fees are waived for transportation libraries, Transportation Knowledge Network members, and other libraries with whom we have reciprocal loan agreements. The library does not loan audio-visual materials, nor items from its Archives, Special Collections or Learning Resource Center. All other interlibrary loan requests will be considered. All requests, however, are reviewed for any potential transit system security issues. Metro policy prohibits the loan or circulation of any security sensitive material as determined by the library staff and/or legal counsel. Such security sensitive materials may include, but are not limited to: technical specifications, plans, drawings, blueprints, diagrams, maps, reports, or any other printed matter, film, video tape, photographs, electronic files or data.
