Interlibrary Loan

Northwestern University Libraries (NUL) has rich resources but sometimes the item you want is checked out, missing, lost, or [gasp!] is something NUL never acquired.  If this is the case, use NUL's Interlibrary Loan service to request an article, book, book chapter, video, or other item not currently available at NUL. Articles or book chapters will be scanned and emailed to you while physical items will be delivered to the library that you specify in your ILL account profile.  You can request that physical items items be mailed to you. Set up your preferences for a delivery location for physical materials (e.g. books) in your ILL account.
