  3. Status: If this says "AVAILABLE", the book should be on the shelf and ready for you to check out. Other statuses (such as a due date, or "MISSING") mean the book isn't available right now, but you can request a different copy through interlibrary loan.

Search items we can borrow from other libraries

WorldCat includes records for materials owned by participating libraries around the world.

UNH students, faculty, and staff can request items from BLC WorldCat and Interlibrary Loan for free!

1. Click on the title of the item -- this will open the full record with all the item details.

2. If you see a Boston Library Consortium (BLC) box with a "Request [3-4 days]" button, you're in luck!

One of our nearby partner libraries has the book and we can get it for you relatively quickly. If you don't see this button, proceed to step 3.

2b. Once you click the "Request [3-4 days]" button, you'll be prompted to log in with your UNH ID number (without the dash).

2c. Your book information should have transferred automatically to the request form -- check that your pick up location is correct and press "Continue."

2d. You should get a confirmation message that your request went through correctly.

3. If the BLC doesn't have the item, you can still request it through Interlibrary Loan by clicking the "Request [5-10 days]" button.

You can request titles held by libraries all over the world -- just keep in mind that books coming from further away will take longer to arrive.
