If a book you would like is checked out or not available at Northwestern, try our Interlibrary Loan Department's new UBorrow service. UBorrow is a new borrowing service that offers rapid access to more than 90 million books from regional research libraries. Books requested through UBorrow will typically arrive within one week, which is faster than the average recall process, and will have a loan period of 12 weeks with an optional 4-week renewal.
