Yes you can. How you order depends on who has the item. Novanet Express allows you to order items from other Novanet libraries. Interlibrary Loan* (ILL) allows you to order items not available in the Novanet system.
You can order items through the Novanet catalogue. You can also borrow books in person from any Novanet library using your SMU ID card. If the item you want is not listed, use the Interlibrary Loan form (login is the barcode number on your SMU ID and password is the last four digits of your phone number**), and we will try and find the item for you. To cancel or renew an ILL, log in to the Interlibrary Loan form and send a quick message to the library (under 'Contact' on the left hand menu, click on 'Library Staff' and enter a message in the box that opens).
*The Interlibrary Loan service is only for currently-registered students, staff and faculty of SMU. The general public must use the public library system to get books outside of the Novanet system. The Novanet Express service is available to members of the public registered with a Novanet library.
**If you are having problems logging in, please call the Circulation desk at 902-420-5547.
