Interlibrary Loan: We'll Try to Get it for You

If you come across an article or book chapter that is not in our collections, you can usually still get it! Use Interlibrary Loan to request that we get a copy of it for you. We will try to borrow it from another library, and get it to you (usually an electronic copy) in a few business days. (This service supports research and is not available for textbooks.)

It will automatically be an option in most databases. You can also fill out the interlibrary loan form on our website.

Schedule a Research Appointment

We're happy to schedule a research consultation with you via phone, email, Zoom, or whatever method of communication works best for you. 

Work with a librarian to:

  • discuss and narrow your topic
  • refine your searching techniques
  • choose the highest-quality information to use
  • and more!
Librarians are here to support your learning and research, and to make finding information a straightforward and friendly process. Schedule your consultation today!
