Interlibrary Loan  

The library holds many periodicals and books, but sometimes we do not have full-text access to an article, nor do we have a particular book.  If we do not have a certain article, or a book, place an Interlibary Loan request.  Articles will be sent directly to your email.  Books will be sent from the lending library to our library, and can be picked at one of our locations (e.g., Mudd or the Main Library).   To find books not available at Northwestern, use WorldCat.  


Database of several thousand libraries worldwide, most of which are in the United States.  Use Worldcat to locate materials not held at the Northwestern Libraries.  You can place interlibrary loan requests directly from Worldcat.
