If a circulating item is not available according to the University Libraries Catalog, you may search Prospector and make a request. You will be notified by email when it is ready for pickup. If not available through the University Libraries collections nor through Prospector, you may place an Interlibrary Loan request for a copy of that item and we will send you an email notification when the item is ready for pickup.
