Not @ the Library?
Don't forget about Document Delivery. Document Delivery Services will try to get the materials that you need from libraries throughout the United States and around the world. If you find a book or journal/magazine article that we don't have in our collection, go ahead and submit a Document Delivery request right away. Depending on where the staff locate your request, it could take anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks.
How do I submit a request? First, you need to create an account. To do that, go to the Document Delivery page and click on the "Create Account" link. Once you create an account, you can simply use your netID and password to submit requests.
