WorldCat lets you search the holdings of libraries across the world.

Interlibrary Loans: To request a book that you find listed there, use the UNLV Find Text button and select Request from another library (interlibrary loan). When you log in with your ILLiad account, it will generate a filled-out request form. 

  • Books requested from ILLiad are usually printed books sent by mail.
  • Book chapters may also be requested via ILLiad and those are sent by email as PDFs.
  • E-books listed in WorldCat cannot be viewed unless also owned by UNLV.
