Can't find an item in BYU's catalog?  Look in WorldCat!  WorldCat allows you to search the collections of libraries around the world to find items you need.  WorldCat is available as a standalone website or through the HBLL's list of databases.

Hint: By accessing WorldCat through the HBLL's web page, you can automatically see if BYU has an item that appears in your WorldCat search.  This allows you to connect with the HBLL's Interlibrary Loan service with the click of a mouse and request the item you're looking for.  If you're on campus you are automatically routed to BYU's version of WorldCat when you go to  If you're off campus you'll need to sign in using your BYU Net ID and password to get to BYU's version of WorldCat.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Once you identify books from other libraries, you can order them online, through Interlibrary Loan Services. Fill out an online request for the materials, and be sure to allow enough time for arrival.  Physical books take about a week to arrive while electronic materials are available within a few days after your request.  Please note that, in addition to books, you can also request Articles, Book Chapters, Media Items (videos, audio recordings, etc), Conference Papers, Theses & Dissertations, Microfilms, and Newspapers through ILL.
