Requests can be submitted through the ILL request page. You will need to log-in via EZ Proxy using your Pitt computing account username and password. A one-time user registration is required before making an ILL request. You will not need to re-enter personal information every time you make a request.
Select the type of request you would like to make (book, book chapter, journal article, etc.). Please be aware that the ULS cannot ship any books or items that are not owned by Pitt. Enter information in the required fields (marked with an *) and any notes or additional information you have about the item (e.g. edition, publication year). Be sure to note that you are a Pitt Online student in the Notes field of the request form. Then click "Submit Request."
Get It! offers delivery of items that are not checked out to a library location that is most convenient for you! Get it! lets everyone request delivery of books from any ULS library, ULS Storage, and regional campuses.
After finding a book, click on the Get It! symbol in the catalog record, and fill out the form. Log in using your University Computing Account (email) username and password.
To use Get it!
If Pitt Libraries don't have the books you need, you can use E-ZBorrow to request the items from other academic libraries. Borrow an item from one of 50+ other regional libraries -- fast! You will need your Pitt ID number (starts with 2P) to use E-ZBorrow.
If you cannot find the materials you need from Get It! or E-Z Borrow, try Interlibrary Loan (ILL)! You can order books or articles through this service, that will again be delivered to you for free.
ILL services are available to Pitt students, staff and faculty with a valid Pitt ID and Pitt computing account
