Borrow It Now!

BorrowItNow is an enhancement of traditional interlibrary loan that allows you to search and request books from a unified catalog of 30 academic research libraries.

  • Search the BorrowItNow database to locate the needed item. Select the "request" button to place your request via your ILLiad account.
  • Expect more reliable turnaround time to get the needed resource. Most items should arrive within one week.
  • Receive predictable loan period of 6-8 weeks for physical book loans. DVDs and other special-format materials will still be relatively brief loan periods.
  • You may request books that are currently checked out at USU Libraries via BorrowItNow.
  • You can access the BorrowItNow database, from the Interlibrary Loan home page,, and clicking on the "BorrowItNow" icon or from the library catalog when an item is checked out.
