Getting Materials WVU Doesn't Own

If you're searching thoroughly, no doubt you'll come across excellent resources that are not available in the WVU Libraries' collection.  Use ILLiad, our interlibrary loan service, to request these.  We'll do our best to get them for you from another library system.  Articles are usually sent as pdfs, and may arrive as quickly as the next day.  Books have to be mailed to us, and often take a week or longer to arrive.  Another good source for books is E-ZBorrow.
