Interlibrary Loan for Off-Campus Users

What We Can Deliver

Interlibrary Loan can provide print materials owned by the Libraries to Online Education students. However, this type of material will only be sent to students who are taking Online Education classes with no on-campus component. Requests are sent through the ILLiad system.

Articles available in the University Libraries

Articles only available in print will be copied and sent electronically. Articles from Wiener-Rogers Law Library cannot be sent.

Articles obtained from other libraries

If an article is not owned by the University Libraries, a copy will be requested from another library and an electronic copy will be sent.

Books available in the University Libraries

  • Books owned by the University Libraries can be checked out and mailed to your home address.
  • You are required to return the books at your expense. A mailing label will be enclosed to return the books to the library.
  • Materials must be received by the library no later than the due date or you will be assessed late fines.
  • The length of time you can keep books checked out and the number of times you may renew them will be determined by your status as an undergraduate, graduate, or faculty at the UNLV Libraries.
  • Books may be recalled. If a book is recalled from you by another library user, you will have two weeks to return it.
