Borrow items from other libraries

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows UNLV students, staff, and faculty to borrow from other libraries if items are not available at UNLV Libraries.  Most articles arrive within 24 hours, and books arrive within a week.  The Library typically covers all charges for this service.
