What if the book I want isn't here

Looking for Books and Journals

What if the Book I Want Isn't Here?

Step 1:
Search LibrarySearch - Libraries Worldwide (WorldCat), which searches almost 3,000 libraries around the world.  Enter your search terms and limit by type of material if desired (for example, "books").

  • Items in Summit Libraries (Pacific Northwest) can be requested and arrive in 3-5 days.
  • Items in WorldCat Libraries (worldwide) can be requested and arrive in 7-10 days

Step 3:
If you still can't find the book you need, but you have evidence that it exists (for example, you are looking for a specific title or edition of a book), submit a request using the UO Libraries' interlibrary loan form and we'll take care of the rest.

For help, please contact a librarian.
