- If you are in the vicinity of a Big Ten Academic Alliance school, you may be able apply for reciprocal borrowing privileges and check out the item if it's available there.
- OCLC participating institutions offer a reciprocal borrowing privileges for faculty.
- Check to see if there is an e-book version available in the Library Catalog, Google Books, HathiTrust, or the Internet Archive.
- Search WorldCat, the worldwide catalog, to see if the item is available in a library near you. You may be able to use the book inside of the library, even if you are not able to check it out.
- If you just need a few chapters of a book the University Library owns, Doc Express may be an option.
