Answer

You can request materials from other libraries if Trine University Library doesn't have the items you need. This service is called Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and it is FREE. Interlibrary Loan Services are available for all Trine University students, faculty, and staff.

How to request something from another library:

1. Start your search in WorldCat (e.g. search by title, ISBN, or author).

2. After you hit the search button, you will see a list of items on the next page. Click the title of the item you want to request.

3. And then Click the Request Item button.

WorldCat

4. You should now see a request form and just fill out the required information. Be sure to include your e-mail address! Submit your request, and you will receive an e-mail within 1-2 weeks when your item has arrived.

What if I don't find what I'm looking for in WorldCat?

You can request anything through this form.
