Visit any campus library to check out or make reproductions of materials. Storage facilities are not open to the public, but material may be retrieved through the Book and Media Express Service.
Materials located in UK Libraries may be requested though your local library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service. Through that service you may request the loan of an item(s) from circulating collections, or copies/scans of journal articles, etc. UK’s ILL Lending policies may be given to your local library staff for information on borrowing material through this process.
