Find an article or book you like, but it's not in the Rod Library collection? That's what ILL is for! With ILL, your item can be requested from other libraries. This service is open to all current students, faculty (emeritus included), and staff at UNI! What does it cost? We always ask to lend for free, but some times the lending library does charge a fee. Students primarily do not have to pay this fee; the Rod Library covers the cost. If a faculty/staff member is charged for an ILL, you or your department will be charged. Ready? Submit your request through ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan Internet Accessible Database) today.
A request can be rejected if all lending libraries were unable to send the item. These are common reason why:
NOTE: If an item cannot be lent by any of the libraries, we will contact you.
What is Get It Now? Get It Now is a purchase alternative regarding ILL and copyright law (see Helpful Links on this page for more information about copyright).
How do you know if you need something from Get It Now? Honestly, you won't know. Thankfully, Get It Now is something the ILL staff will handle, so we will know if your request requires Get It Now. There's nothing special you need to do; we handle it for you!
Find an article we own and you want a digital copy? We can do that, too!
