To obtain materials (books, scans of articles or chapters, DVDs, etc.) that are not available through OneSearch, you can place an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. Submit a request right in OneSearch or in most databases.
You'll need to create an ILL account to place interlibrary loan requests.
There are 4 main ways to place interlibrary loan requests:
For each of these options, after choosing between an article or book chapter and a full book, you will arrive at a form where you will need to provide information about the item you would like to check out. Fill in that form and hit "Submit Request".
ILL: You can place a request directly in your ILL account under New Request.
OneSearch: Click on the Request (digital) copy from another library option.
WorldCat (and other FirstSearch databases): WorldCat is the best database for locating books to get through interlibrary loan. To request, use the Interlibrary loan request option under Access Options.
Most other databases: To place requests in most other databases, use the Find It! button.
