Interlibrary Loan: Getting Started

Requesting Items

Log in to Interlibrary Loan Here

Faculty and staff may request on-campus delivery for items already in Woodward Library's collection by filling out the On-Campus Delivery Form.


Check Availability First

Please check the Woodward Library catalog and online databases before submitting an interlibrary loan request. The library may already own the item or document that you need. 

For books, book chapters, DVDs, and other media, check the library catalog

For journal articles, search for the journal title in BrowZine.

Theses and dissertations may be found in the library catalog or one of our relevant databases

For music scores, consult the library's music scores and sheet music guide

Books and articles can also be requested through WorldCat. If the library does not own the resource, a Request Item through Interlibrary Loan icon will appear. This icon will automatically transfer you to your interlibrary loan account
