COVID-19 InterLibrary Loan Update

UW Libraries InterLibrary Loan Office continues to request online articles and eBook chapters. We are unable to request physical materials due to a large number of academic libraries closing and no longer loaning physical material. While the Libraries are not able to purchase eTextbooks, the University Store has compiled a list of eTextbook options. Additional resources publishers have made available during the COVID-19 pandemic are on a Library Guide.
