Request Materials We Don't Own

The last day for students to request interlibrary loan books for the semester is Monday, April 24th. Article requests continue.

To obtain materials the library doesn't own, you can either request to borrow the materials through interlibrary loan (ILL) or suggest that the library purchase the materials for permanent addition to the collection.

Students & Staff

To request books, book chapters, articles, and media materials that the library does not own, submit an ILL request and we will try to borrow it from another library for you.

Do you need book or media materials longer than a month and think the library should add it to its collection? Suggest a purchase:
