Items not available as part of the Library collection can be requested from other institutions. As a small undergraduate library, our collection is certainly not exhaustive. Highly specialized materials may require an interlibrary loan request.
Interlibrary Loan Requests can be submitted one of two ways:
For example, if, when searching in an Ebsco database, you discover a resource that is unavailable here at the UofW, you can click Request an Interlibrary Loan. It will take few seconds to search for the item at other institutions. You may view a list of institutions where this item is available, or simply proceed. Upon entering your barcode, your request is placed.
Interlibrary loan materials may take a week or longer to arrive, so please have patience. If you item has not arrived within ten days, contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 786-9814.
