Interlibrary Loan

If the item you need is not available through the University Libraries, you can request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). ILL is a fast, free service which obtains materials for study and research, such as books, theses, and periodical articles that are not otherwise available. To submit an ILL request, use ILLiad.

Research Assistance

Librarians are available to assist with research any time the libraries are open. For immediate assistance, Ask a Librarian, or use one of our helpful Research Guides to find the most useful resources for your research topic. You can also request an appointment with a subject specialist for individualized assistance with identifying and locating resources. In addition, the libraries offer regular Classes & Workshops to sharpen your research skills.


All University Libraries provide computer labs, wireless access, printing, and digital media services. See Computers & Technology for more information.

DVD/Streaming Video

DVDs and streaming videos are available through the library catalog. See DVD/Streaming Video for more information and new titles.
