NOTE: If we don’t have the book you need, search the LINK+ system (Libraries in

California and Nevada), and if it has what you need, you can borrow it online.

Click on the LINK+ button in OSCAR after your initial unsuccessful search.

Books requested normally arrive at the circulation desk in the University Library

in a couple of days, and you will be notified by e-mail when they are available.

If LINK+ doesn’t have the book you need, the library has a search service for students,

faculty and staff that will locate and deliver it to the University Library. Go to the Interlibrary Loan & LINK+ page at:
