Request books from the Boston Library Consortium catalog

The fastest way to request a book that the UNH Library doesn't own (or a book that is currently checked out) is to request it through the Boston Library Consortium. You can find and request books owned by the consortium in WorldCat.

Request items from Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Need an article, book, video, or other item that UNH Library doesn't own? Use our free Interlibrary Loan service!

Log in to your Interlibrary Loan account to request or renew items from participating libraries around the world. The first time you log in, you'll need to fill out a brief registration form -- just remember to use your UNH email address when you register!

1. Enter the information about the item you'd like to request (if you've been searching an article database or WorldCat, those systems should automatically push the item's info to your account).

2. The item you requested should now show up in your Outstanding Requests list on the homepage -- if you don't see the item's information there, try submitting your request again.

3. If you've gotten an email letting you know that your electronic article has arrived, you can download it from the View menu.

  • Articles can only be posted on this page for 30 days, due to copyright restrictions -- so please save a copy to your computer.
