If you need an item that is unavailable at UNC Libraries (checked out, lost, or something we don't own), try Prospector. From the web version of The Source, search for the desired item. If it isn't listed or is unavailable, use the "Repeat Search in Prospector" option.
Note the following limitations:
To request an item, use the "Request this item option." If the item is available, you'll be prompted to identify yourself as a UNC patron; then you'll enter your name and Bear number. The database will then verify you as a UNC patron, and send the item to the UNC library of your choice.
When your Prospector items arrive, e-mail will be sent to your UNC e-mail account. The notification will also display on your library account as items on hold for you.
If Prospector can't provide the items you need, try Interlibrary Loan. This is a cooperative project involving libraries all over the USA and abroad. ILL offers:
To make a request, UNC students/faculty/staff can file online requests using ILLiad.
When your items arrive, e-mail will be sent to your UNC campus e-mail account if you have one. They will also display on your library account as items on hold for you.
