Hello. There are three ways to access the Interlibrary Loan service:
1. If Libraries that own this item reads "Committee on Institutional Cooperation", this is a perfect opportunity to use the library's newest service: UBorrow. UBorrow allows for access to the shared collections of Big 10 university libraries. Items usually arrive within a week, have a longer loan period and also a guaranteed 1-month renewal. To request items from UBorrow, simply search the combined catalog at ter.ps/uborrow.
2. When using WorldCat Discovery, find the record for the book that you want to request. Then under "Availability," click the red Request Item button. This will bring you into your ILL Services Account, where you can place the request. Citation information will be imported from the WorldCat record, making it easier to place a request.
3. Log in to your ILL Services Account directly, then manually add the citation. You can also access your ILL Services Account by going to the Interlibrary Loan page on the Libraries' website, and click the link "Log in to your ILL Services Account."
