Find information on the system from how-to documents and videos to background information on the CLOVER information page.

Libraries joining the VERSO catalog will find information on that page as well.


Statewide Interlibrary loan (ILL) services are administrated by the Vermont Department of Libraries CLOVER system. State employees and member libraries can search library holdings around the state and place ILL requests.

VTLIB Courier Service

Beginning March 1, 2018 the Vermont Department of Libraries will be taking over the administration of the Interlibrary Loan Courier Service. For more information about this service, please visit the Courier Service site.

Public Libraries

The majority of public and academic libraries are already signed up for CLOVER Interlibrary Loan services. To check your library's status look for your Vermont Union Catalog (VUC) symbol in the Library Directory. If you do not find a symbol contact Tom McMurdo in the Technical Services Unit to sign up for ILL services.

Each member library is required to:

  • Check CLOVER requests at least twice per week.
  • Keep anti-virus software on the computer used to access your CLOVER account.
