What if the Library does not have what I want?

If the Library does not hold or provide access to a particular resource that you need you can probably get it through our Interlibrary Loan service. This service us allows to request books, journal articles etc from other libraries so you can access them. You can access the Interlibrary Loan page via the "place/tack interloan" link in the key tasks menu on all the library webpages. See the Library's Interlibrary Loan page for a detailed description of how it all works.
