Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries

The first time you use WMU's interlibrary loan service, you must first register and set up an account. 

To begin the process, click here.

You will be asked to login with your BroncoNetID and password.  If you have never used the service before, follow the prompts for First Time Users.   You only have to register once during your time at WMU.

Journal articles are generally digitized and sent to your email box within a few short days of request.

Books take a bit longer, since they are mailed.  Typically, books arrive in one to two weeks.

Requests from within article databases. Many of our journal databases allow you to put in an interlibrary loan request directly from the database itself.  Be on the lookout for this button in whatever database you are searching .  You will click on it to see if WMU owns the journal you are looking for.  If we do not, you will see a link underneath it that says "Get it elsewhere."  Just login in with your BroncoNetID and password and let the system do the rest.

Another resource for requesting materials the WMU libraries don't have is MelCat , the Michigan eLibrary catalog and resource sharing system).
