    Almost every LVC Library databases will provide a Request an item through ILLiad link on each result.

    You can also request materials via ILLiad from the library's homepage.

    With ILLiad, you'll either get a PDF of  the journal or magazine article or a hard copy that will need to be returned.

    Allow 2-3 days for an article; allow up to 2 weeks for books or media.
