What is BorrowItNow?

is an Interlibrary Loan service that allows you to search for and request books directly from libraries of the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA), a consortium of 33 research libraries located in the central and western United States. You can expect a faster turnaround time as books are shipped at an expedited rate. You will receive a longer loan period for physical books than the traditional Interlibrary Loan service.

How Does it Work?

If you do not find the book you are looking for in Usearch, you can submit a BorrowItNow request.  From the BorrowItNow search page you can search for book titles. The search results will list the holdings of all participating GWLA libraries, including materials available in the Marriott Library. If there are copies available through interlibrary loan, simply click “Request”.  You will then log into your ILLiad (ILL account) and click “Submit Request”.  The request goes directly to another institution without needing to be processed by local staff. You will receive an email notification when the book is ready for pick-up.

 

Search BorrowItNow

The main search page is for basic searches.

       

Once you click the “Search button, BorrowItNow will take a moment to retrieve matches to your search.

Please be patient while search results load. BorrowItNow is slower than a typical search engine because it is simultaneously searching the collections of over 30 major research university libraries.

The search results list the holdings of all participating libraries, including materials available in the Marriott Library. The title, author, date of publication, and format type are provided. The libraries that own the item are displayed under each entry.

 

Requesting Via BorrowItNow

Based on the search results, BorrowItNow will provide one of three "Request" options:

1) This item is: Available at the UUTAH Library

Click the "UUTAH" link to be taken to the record of the item in Usearch, where you can request a hold.

2) Click here to place an Interlibrary Loan request through BorrowItNow. Request

By clicking “Request,” you will be asked to pick your campus library, then log into your ILLiad account with your uNID and password. The ILLiad book request form will be populated with the information for the item you want to borrow.  Complete any other required fields.  If you have any notes to add to the request, please put them in the title or author fields, as the request will be sent directly to an owning library that will not be able to view the “notes” field of the request. Click the “Submit Request” button at the bottom of the page to send the request through BorrowItNow.

3) Click here to place an Interlibrary Loan request through ILLiadRequest

By clicking “Request,” you will be asked to pick your campus library, then log into your ILLiad account with your uNID and password. The ILLiad book request form will be populated with the information for the item you want to borrow.  Complete any other required fields.  Click the “Submit Request” button at the bottom of the page to send the request through traditional interlibrary loan.
