If We Don't Have What You Need: Getting Resources

What You Can Get

We can  get just about anything you need as long as someone is willing to lend it to us!  What usually will NOT be lent: original manuscripts or rare books.  Some items may be difficult to get, such as entire journals or newspapers, reference books, multimedia, software. 

Generally the fastest way to get materials is to find a local library that has it and go there and get it yourself.  But with a little planning, you can let us get the materials for you, either through EZ-Borrow (for books only) or through the interlibrary loan system, ILLiad

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to Ask a Librarian.  You can also contact the Interlibrary loan office if you have questions or concerns.
