DocuServe can be utilized to request materials not available in the Caltech Library's print collection or electronic holdings.  This can include journal articles, books, book chapters, theses, and technical reports. 

However, some items might be difficult to obtain from other libraries, such as:

  • Reference materials
  • Textbooks
  • Whole volumes or issues of periodicals
  • Audiovisual materials
  • Rare, fragile or archival materials
  • Multi-volume sets
  • Patents
  • Recently published materials
