The databases listed below can help you locate those hard to find items you need. Once you locate an item, you can request it via ILLiad. Lending, however, is still at the discretion of the owning library, so if an item is an original archival item available at only one library, chances are it won't be lent. Don't hesitate to ask for help concerning these items.
At times you might need materials other than books and/or journal articles. Depending on the item you want, it may be difficult or impossible to get, but we can try! Requests for these items may take longer, since fewer libraries might have them and/or be willing to lend them.
