Interlibrary Loan

If the Oviatt does not have the title you need (and this includes books, DVDs, CDs, scores, etc) we can often borrow it from another library on your behalf.

Find the item using WorldCat and click on Find Text when you find the right one. 

Then log onto Interlibrary Loan.

Remember that the lending library determines how long you can keep an item and you MUST log into to ILL to request a renewal or check the date.
