When you have a long term research project and have time to wait, use our online interlibrary loan system, ILLiad, to order books from Lightner Library and other colleges. You must register with ILLiad by creating a username and password.
Once you are registered with ILLiad, you can make requests for books and articles at your computer. You will also have the ability to track your requests online.
Please remember that interlibrary loan for books takes time ~ sometimes several weeks. Books are mailed to you and articles are delivered electronically.
