Colorado SWIFT (Statewide Interlibrary loan Fast Track)
The Colorado SWIFT service is a statewide system that allows Ruby Sisson library patrons to search libraries throughout Colorado and make requests to borrow materials not in our collection. The SWIFT service is available for library patrons who have had their library cards for 3 months or longer. The SWIFT service differs from the interlibrary collection sharing available through AspenCat, the library's union catalog (14 library members statewide). Interlibrary requests placed through AspenCat are independent of the SWIFT service.
- There is a limit of 1 SWIFT interlibrary loan request at one
time per patron.
- Interlibrary requests typically take 1-2 weeks.
- Fines of $.50 per day are charged for overdue
interlibrary loan materials.
- The due date and renew rules
are set by the lending library.
To use the SWIFT service, patrons can fill out a request form (in person or over the phone). Patrons can also choose to establish a Colorado Virtual Library account to search and request items on their own via the internet. To set up a Colorado Virtual Library account, patrons will need to fill out virtual interlibrary loan access form (in person or over the phone).
