Get articles and books that are not in the library

bluequestion1What do you do when the OU-Tulsa Library does not have the book or article you need?

You have looked on the shelves. You have checked the current and bound journals. You have searched for electronic resources through the library’s E-Journals page or the Bizzell Library catalog. You have asked a library staff member for search help. But you still can’t get the one thing you’re looking for. What to do?

The solution is simple. Ordering books and articles from other libraries is something we do all the time at the OU-Tulsa Library. The process is called Interlibrary Loan, sometimes abbreviated as ILL, and it’s absolutely free for students, faculty, and staff.

Our service is called ILLiad, and you can begin using it after a short one-time registration process. Be sure to have your library barcode ready,  since you’ll need it to register for ILLiad. If you don’t have a library barcode, you can get one in person at the library front desk, or use the online form on the library web site.

Once you complete the ILLiad registration process, you can begin ordering books and articles right away!
