Can't Find What You're Looking For?

If you can't find the item you're looking for in our catalog, you can complete the Interlibrary Loan request form and we will do our best to find it for you.

Please note that there is a limit of 5 active ILL requests per person.


ILL Basics
  • Items requested take at least 2 weeks to obtain, and we are unable to guarantee arrival time.
  • Check our catalog first.
  • The loan period for each item is based on our due date to the lending library.
  • If the item is an old item, out of print, or in fragile condition, we reserve the right to make the item In-Library Use Only. These means the item cannot be taken home.
