Requesting Books from Other Libraries

If the University of Nevada, Reno’s copy of a book is checked out, the library can usually get a copy for you at no cost from another library.

Request Through Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)


  1. Go to ILLiad
  2. Enter your NetID Username and Password and click on Logon to ILLiad
  3. One time only: The first time you use ILLiad, you will have to register to make sure we have the correct information to notify you when your requested items are ready
  4. After you log on, click on Book under New Request on the menu of options on the left side of the screen
  5. Fill out the required fields

The library will contact you by email when your book arrives. It will take 1 to 2 weeks. You can pick it up at the Access Services Desk on the main floor of the Knowledge Center.
