WorldCat or ILL?
Which should I use?
Books and media:
WorldCat is the best way to obtain books and audiovisual materials from the libraries of the Boston Library Consortium and beyond. This is usually faster than ILL.
Articles and book chapters:
The easiest way is to find a citation in a database (such as PubMed, MLA Bibliography etc.) and then follow the link. These requests go into the ILL system.
Note that if no library in the Boston Library Consortium can fill a particular request via WorldCat (book, media, article etc.), then that request will automatically pass into the ILL system and ILL staff will try other non-BLC libraries.
Hours: 8:30am–5:00pm, M–F
Problems or emergencies:
Contact the ILL (Resource Sharing) department during business hours. If you need to report a problem after 5:00pm or during the weekend, please contact the InfoPoint.
We may have it here at Brandeis already!
