If your library does not own materials a patron wishes to borrow, the State Library will be happy to loan through LoanSHARK, Louisiana’s own statewide interlibrary loan system or OCLC, the worldwide interlibrary loan system. The State Library does not charge a fee for the loan of materials, other than to recover photocopying charges.
