Interlibrary Loan is the department that handles delivery of books and articles from one library to another. You can use your Interlibrary Loan account to request an article, book, book chapter, or thesis that UNL does not have.

You can login directly to your Interlibrary Loan account, or you can find it by clicking on the "Find This for Me" button in an item record in in WorldCat or in a journal database.

Delivery time depends on the type of item requested and where it is coming from. For example, an article will take 1-2 business days, while a book requested from a non-UNL library may take a week or more.

You can also try searching UBorrow, which searches Big 10 schools, to receive books from non-UNL libraries more quickly.

If you need to update your account information, log in and click "Change User Information" under "Tools."

The first time you use Interlibrary Loan, you will need to create an account (see the link below for instructions).

Delivery and scanning of materials owned by the UNL Libraries can now be done from within the library catalog.
