Interlibrary Loan: How can I get a book or article WKU Libraries does not have in its collection?


Answer

WKU faculty, staff and students may use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to obtain materials not in the libraries' collections.  There is no charge for this service. Books, journal articles, dissertations, government documents, microfilm materials, and other items may be borrowed via ILL. 

Please note: ILL services are only available to current WKU faculty, staff, and students. Alumni and members of the public should contact their local public library to inquire about available ILL services. 

To place a request, click "Login" from the ILL website:
