There are several ways to borrow books from other libraries if you are a current UNF student, staff, or faculty member.

1. Try UBorrow.  This is interlibrary loan between the state university and state college libraries of Florida.  You can access it through the handy widget in OneSearch (right side of the results page) or through the classic catalog interface (click at the top where it says "#### items may be available").

2. If the book you want is not available through UBorrow, you can make an interlibrary loan request in ILLiad.  ILLiad is ILL with any other library, whether in the state or not, public, private, anywhere.  You may be directed to ILLiad from OneSearch or a database for articles but people often go directly to ILLiad to manually enter book requests.  On the Library homepage, click My Account in the grey bar and select the link Interlibrary Loan.

3. If you live close to or will be travelling to another state university or college, you may borrow items directly at their library.  Be sure to bring your valid Osprey1Card and maybe a current class schedule as proof of enrollment.  The university will make you a special account to borrow at their location.
