There are two ways to request an interlibrary loan: manually filling out a form or requesting from a database.
Login using your MyUSI username and password. If you do not already have an account, you will be prompted to fill out a new user form. You can begin requesting immediately
If you already know what you need, you can use one of the forms located on the left side of your Interlibrary Loan account. You will see a section that says “New Request.” Choose the correct form for the item you are requesting and fill out as much information as you have (be sure all fields with asterisks have something in them or the form will not be submitted)
When searching in the databases, if you find a citation for an article or a book that Rice Library does not own, you’re given the option to request it via interlibrary loan.
