Requests from Maryland academic and out-of-state libraries

Please note that the Book Request form is to be used ONLY when the item you require is not available at your local library or in the Marina catalog. Please be sure to search the Marina catalog first as this form will send your request outside of the Marina network to be filled. When completing this form please ensure you include as much detail as possible about the material being requested to ensure the material being sought can be identified and sourced without delay. Starting July 1, 2015, this service will require customers to pay a minimum of $5.00 per book request and $10.00 per serial request.
