There are a few ways to request books that the UWF Libraries do not own. These are two of the most common:

If you know the title:

1) Log onto your Interlibrary Loan Account (ILL) , and click "Book" under New Request. Fill out the required information and click submit. The first time, you will need to create your account first. OneSearch may also allow you to request books via a "Request from Interlibrary Loan" link if you discover the book that way.

If you discover books via browsing the Statewide Catalog:

2) In OneSearch, you may search the Statewide Catalog by selecting it in the drop-down instead of conducting an "Everything" search. If you see a book that the UWF library does not own, click on "Check Available Services" and place a UBorrow Request under "How to Get It" in the record for the book by signing in.

Whichever process you use, you will receive an email notification when your book arrives, and you may pick it up at the Reference/Information desk. Please see the attached link for more information.
