Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that libraries have been offering for more than a century. It allows the library, on your behalf, to request materials not owned by Hiram College. In the case of books, you may borrow directly through OhioLINK or SearchOHIO without using interlibrary loan. For journal articles, please double check the library's Journals A-Z list to make sure the library does not subscribe, either in print or online, to that journal for the year needed. For more information, see the Subject Guide for Interlibrary Loan.
