Interlibrary Loan

What if the library does not have a reference book, journal article, or book that you need? We can still get it for you via our interlibrary loan service. It's free! And articles often come electronically within a few days. For more information see the interlibrary loan page.

Tip: if you need a reference book entry put a note in the form saying that you just need the entry on X person. That way, the lending library can scan the entry and send just what you need, instead of the entire book. It will be faster and more efficient; plus, some libraries don't loan reference books.

Lean Library

Lean Library is a browser extension that lets you take the library's online resources with you. If you are searching the general web for resources rather than the library's site, Lean Library will let you know if a resource you are looking at is available through OU libraries, or will directly link you to the ILL page (check out the Don't Buy It, Borrow It page in this guide to learn more about ILLs!). This helps you to avoid paywalls as you browse the web.
