What should I do before placing an Interlibrary Loan request?

  • Check Google or Google Scholar. Several articles are available in full online.
  • Check our journal holdings if you're looking for an article or CLIC book holdings if you're looking for a book. You can also search Summon if you just want to discover items. We have access to several titles, and we might just have what you're looking for!
  • Search WorldCat to identify your item and its citation.

If you find what you are looking for but are unable to make it to campus, place an Interlibrary Loan request!

If you can't find what you're looking for in our holdings, place an Interlibrary Loan request!
