Interlibrary Loan allows the Library to borrow books and articles from other libraries across the country. If you see a book or article that we do not have in the collection, request it through Interlibrary Loan and we can order it from another school. We usually receive the book or article within 3-5 days, sometimes even within 24 hours. There is no charge for this service unless the book is overdue, damaged or lost.
Use HawkShare to order articles or book chapters that are delivered to your account for PDF access.
