Interlibrary Loan Request --Get Books & Articles We Don't Have


Get Books or Articles We Don't Have
Using Our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service
 


 

Before requesting books or articles from another library, you should search the Library Catalog (books), or the Journal List (articles) to see if we have the item you need. If you still can't find what you're looking for, then request the item through interlibrary loan.

If you have a citation, you can directly enter that information using either the book request screen or article request screen after you login to your interlibrary loan account.
