Can't find the book you want in Albert, the library catalog? Request it from the Link+ network of libraries, and it will be delivered to campus, usually within 2-3 business days, at no charge to you. It's like the Library's Amazon Prime--except you have to return it in 3 weeks (1 renewal is allowed). More info on Link+

If Link+ doesn't have it, you can try requesting it through ILLiad, though it will probably take longer to get to campus.

Can't get the full text of the article or chapter you want? First check with a librarian--it may be that we have it but the full text link isn't working. If we don't have it, we can try to get it from another library through ILLiad--just fill out the info about your article or chapter, and if we are successful, you will get a link to download a scan of the article or chapter, usually within 2-3 business days, sometimes longer for rarer works.
