Access to print books

Get books by mail! If you would like materials mailed to you, use the request options in the library catalog to select "Ship to – provide address in comment".

Only need a chapter or a few pages? Make a digitization request! Go to the Interlibrary Loan form, login with your Kerberos, and select the most relevant option under "New Request" on the left. The more information you provide, the easier it is to fill the request. You will get an email notice when your request is ready as a PDF. Please allow 4-5 business days. The library cannot scan an entire book or multiple chapters.
