How do I use Interlibrary Loan?

Welcome

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows Moore Library staff to obtain research materials not available in the Moore Library. Interlibrary loan is available to current students, faculty and staff. 

Books, articles, book chapters, and other materials not available in the Moore Library may be requested through interlibrary loan. Please do not request textbooks or media through interlibrary loan.
