When books, dissertations, or articles are not available in MOBIUS, they may be requested through interlibrary loan. Audiovisual materials are not available through interlibrary loan.
Most interlibrary loan requests can be satisfied through the cooperative OCLC/LVIS network at no cost. If the requested material can only be found outside of that network (including most dissertations) the faculty member will be notified as to the probable cost of the transaction. If the material is still desired at that price, the faculty member may pay for it personally, charge his/her department for it at the department chair's discretion, or charge the cost to the department's allocation for library materials, depending on individual departmental policies.
