Interlibrary Loan

UNO Library doesn't own the research materials you need? No problem!

Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows libraries to borrow materials from each other. Visit our ILLiad site to set up your account and start submitting requests. Journal articles and book chapters will be delivered in .pdf format to your ILLiad account. Returnable materials (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.) will be mailed to UNO distance learners. Distance learners are responsible for return postage.
