Turn on "Add results beyond..." to search for items MnPALS libraries don't have and are requestable:
If the item found says "No online access" or "Check Partner Libraries":
Sign in to HamCAT (if you haven't already done so)
Under "How to get It" click on "Request"
Submit the form
For faster access make sure that you have already searched HamCAT before filling out the blank Interlibrary Loan Request online form.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests submissions in HamCAT are part of a series of changes to Interlibrary Loan and Scan on Demand (faculty) services that will improve how users submit and manage their requests. Please note that you will not lose access to Interlibrary Loan, and services will not take longer than before.
* If you request an ebook through ILL, realize that you will probably be offered a print / physical copy of the book. Most libraries don't inter-lend ebooks due to licensing restrictions.
* You can still use WorldCat to look up citations, but you will now have to fill out a blank ILL form in HamCAT for your requests. The linking to ILLiad pre-populated forms from WorldCat will no longer be operational. We recommend you use HamCAT first, search by expanding beyond our partner libraries, and only use WorldCat if HamCAT provides zero results.
Difficult items to borrow through Interlibrary Loan:
ILL offers all current Hamline faculty, staff, and students access to materials needed for coursework and scholarly research which are not currently available at Bush Library but are available at other libraries.
