Resources Emory Doesn't Have

When you need some books, journals, journal articles, newspapers that Emory library does not have, the library's Interlibrary Loan office will help you get them from the library that owns them.  What you need to do is to go to the Interlibrary Loan's webpage and fill in the materials request form, the staff from ILL office will use the information in your request form and get the materials for you.  It usually takes about two weeks to loan the materials.  So, please send your requests as soon as you can, in that case you'll have enough time to use the materials before your paper or project is due.  Below is the link:

Getting Books Emory does Not Own


If you can't find the materials you need from our library, the next step is to use another tool that the library subscribed:  WorldCat.  It is an online catalog of books and other materials held by libraries worldwide.  The titles you find from WorldCat can be retrieved through our Interlibrary Loan office.
