For these items, you'll need to use Interlibrary Loan, a free service that locates books and articles in other libraries and brings them to URI for you.
For books, delivery can take up to a month, so it's wise to start your research early enough to allow for delivery. Articles take approximately 1 week.
Once you've identified what you need, fill out the appropriate Interlibrary Loan form for what you're requesting. Articles are usually delivered via email. If you requested a book. you'll receive an email when the item is ready for pick up at the Circulation Desk.
