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
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
- 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).
