Borrow Materials

Check it Out!

With few exceptions, Business Library materials are available for loan.  Users can also request items through InfoHawk+ and have them held at any branch library or delivered to a campus office.  Just sign in under My Account.  Borrowers can also use My Account to see what they have on loan, as well as renew many items.

The University Libraries support a user’s right to privacy.

Cannot Find an Item Here?

If the University Libraries do not have it, students and staff can request material from elsewhere:

Uborrow — Search over 90 million books from the collections of 15 research libraries, request, and receive within a week from the libraries of the Big Ten Universities, plus the University of Chicago.

InterLibrary Loan — Library staff will search other collections for you.  Some materials, like journal articles, can be delivered online.
