If you have never used the service before, create an InterLibrary Loan account using this form.

Use the main search bar from the Library homepage and select the "Libraries Worldwide" filter option located on the left side of your search results page. Click on the title of the item you want and scroll down the page to click on the gold "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan" button.  When prompted, log into your ILL account. The request form should have been filled out automatically by the system - if some spaces are blank, that's okay! Scroll down and click on "Submit Request."

You will receive an email when your book arrives, usually within 5-7 business days. You will be able to check it out from our Front Desk.
