  • Book chapters
  • Journal articles
    • Up to three articles/chapters from a journal issue/book may be requested.
    • All requests are evaluated for copyright compliance and may be cancelled.
  • Books
    • If the UNLV Libraries copy is an ebook and you need a print copy, please indicate in the notes field that you need a print copy.
  • Dissertations/Theses
  • Media (CDs, DVDs, videos, etc.)
    • Media items may take longer to arrive.
    • Media often have short checkout times.
    • Scheduling for classroom use is unreliable.
  • Currently unavailable from the UNLV Libraries -- checked out, missing, or on order.
    • Make sure to add the status of the item in the notes field on the ILLiad form when requesting (My ILLiad Account).

Please remember to send one request for each item.

Most articles arrive within 24 hours, and books arrive within a week. Turnaround time may be affected by scarcity of sources, distance of sources, holidays and weekends, or incomplete information about the requested item.
