Boston Library Consortium (BLC) members catalogs
This service has been updated (1/2017). Now, instead of making some of your requests through BU WorldCat Local and some through Interlibrary Loan, you can make them all through the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan request form. Items available from consortium libraries will continue to be available within just 1-2 business days from the time you request them.
When you click REQUEST ITEM WorldCat Discovery it will take you to the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan request form.
The first time you use the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan request form you will need to create an account by answering a few questions. After completing that initial form, you will be able to place requests quickly, through our ILLiad interface. The status of your requests will be available for you to review in ILLiad as well.
