Want something we don't have?

If you find a book through the catalog that looks helpful, but Marian University doesn't own it, don't worry! Simply request it through interlibrary loan (ILL). If you found the item in our catalog, you request it right there by clicking "Request It" or "Get It." Otherwise, you can request directly through your ILL account. If you need help setting up an ILL account, you can follow the account creation walkthrough that's linked on this ILL FAQ page.
