You can also request physical or electronic materials to be sent directly to you.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows you to obtain items not owned by UNO Libraries, including books, articles, and other materials.
ILL books take on average about 10 days to arrive and can be sent directly to you, you simply need to specify “Mail to Address” as your preferred delivery method when setting up your ILL account.
PDF article files typically take two to three days to arrive but could take up to a week. Turnaround time depends on the material requested.
The ILL department will also scan chapters, journal articles, and other materials owned by the UNO Libraries and upload them to your ILL account. You can then download these materials as PDFs to your computer. You can make these document delivery requests the same way you make ILL requests.

We also have a video tutorial on downloading and connecting to the VPN on your personal computer.
