Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows UNLV students, staff, and faculty to borrow from other libraries if items are not available at UNLV Libraries.

Materials include articles, books, book chapters, microform, videos, DVDs, CDs, and dissertations and theses.

Most articles arrive within 24 hours and books arrive within a week with some exceptions.

To request materials, log in or create a new ILLiad account.
