During the regular school year, the Felician College Library offers chat reference services Mondays - Fridays, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. Please note that chat reference service will not be available when the Library is closed. Hours may also change during the summer and between semesters.
The Felician College Library is participating in a collaborative Text Messaging Reference Service pilot program named "My Info Quest." This program includes more than 45 participating libraries. Patrons from these libraries may send a text message to 309-222-7740 and a librarian somewhere in the nation will respond in minutes, with 1 txt or 2, to your question! If your question is an in-depth one that a librarian cannot answer in 2 texts, you may be referred to your local library instead. Although this service is free, normal text messaging rates apply.
Felician College Library patrons are asked to include "FCL," the library's 3-letter code, either in the beginning or at the end of their text.
Current hours of service are Monday through Friday, 9 am -11 pm EST and Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm EST.

If the Felician College Library does not own or subscribe to the book or article that you need, we try to borrow it from another library. Patrons are asked to complete the appropriate interlibrary loan (ILL) form, available both online as well as at the Circulation Desk, to request such materials: article, book, book chapter.
ILL materials take an average of two weeks to arrive. The Library will call you to let you know when your requested item is available for you to pick up. If your request is filled electronically, we will send it to you as an e-mail attachment instead.
Please note that you are responsible for the timely return of all ILL materials. Fines for overdue ILL materials are 10 cents per calendar day and may result in the loss of ILL privileges, holding of grades and transcripts, and possible disciplinary action by the College. Please see our Policies page for more information.
