Interlibrary Loan

If the Rod Library does not hold the material you need, the ILL staff will try to get it for you.


When you submit an Interlibrary Loan request, an Interlibrary Loan staff person will perform a search of thousands of other library catalogs to find the item you need.  We make every effort to obtain the material free of charge. If a title cannot be located in a library which lends materials free of charge, you will receive an email notification of the cost.  You must agree to pay the charges before the title is ordered.  

Once the item is located in another library's collection, we will submit your request in compliance with the library's requirements.  We receive about 90% of all materials requested.


Interlibrary Loan service is available to currently enrolled graduate students, undergraduate students, faculty, staff and emeritus. 

Interlibrary Loan Lending of materials from Rod library is available only to other libraries or institutions. Individuals interested in requesting materials from our library should contact their local public, academic or corporate library. Our lending policies are available via the OCLC policies directory or on our Website.

Picking Up Requested Materials

Materials ordered through Interlibrary Loan may be picked up at the Library Services Desk with a UNI ID any time the library is open or in some cases delivered via e-mail. Borrowers are notified through their UNI e-mail account as soon as the material is received.
