Information on Interlibrary Loan


When we don't have a book, book chapter, or journal article in our collection, we can order a copy from our network of interlibrary loan providers. The service is called ILLiad or ILL. 

is a quick way to submit an interlibrary loan request.  It enables you to search for and request books directly from libraries of the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA), a consortium of 36 research libraries located in the central and western United States .  If the request is not filled through BorrowItNow, it will automatically be processed as a regular interlibrary loan request.
