We offer two ways to order materials that Brandeis doesn't have, WorldCat or Interlibrary Loan.
Search the Boston Library Consortium (including Brandeis) and beyond
WorldCat is the faster, unmediated way to order books and audiovisual materials from our partner libraries in the Boston Library Consortium (BLC).
You can see what you have ordered in "My Requests". Go to http://brandeis.worldcat.org/ and "My Requests" is at the top-left of the screen in the drop-down menu under Brandeis University Library.
Login to your interlibrary loan account to view/download articles, submit requests, request renewals, or check the status of your requests.
This system is especially good for complex requests, such as microfilm and multi-volume sets.
Don't forget to logout and close your browser when you are finished! Otherwise other people can submit ILL requests using your account!
