Borrow & Request

The Gordon Library offers extensive collections of library resources to the WPI community. For further information about loan periods, renewals, and fines, read the Library's borrowing and renewing policies. WPI community members can also request materials from another library or suggest new resources for purchase.

Because the library is closed due to COVID-19 precautions, we have temporarily suspended "get it" requests from our print collections, including Founders. If you need print materials that WPI does not have available online, please contact our Interlibrary Loan Department,, or submit an Interlibrary Loan request."

Alumni Services

The Gordon Library welcomes alumni back to WPI! Alumni have lifetime privileges at the Library, including borrowing materials and using computers.
