How to Acquire Materials not in the UH Libraries' Collections
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a program, which allows libraries to borrow books, video, articles, and other materials from other libraries on behalf of their patrons. UH patrons may request any materials through ILL, which are already checked out or not owned by UH Libraries.
