If Berkeley does not own a publication, request an interlibrary loan to borrow from an external library.
This is a free service to Berkeley faculty, staff, and students, and you make an order through the form at lib.berkeley.edu/ilb.
If it’s a print book, a copy will be delivered to the Doe Library for pick up. For journal articles, we email you a PDF copy of the paper. This service takes 1-2 weeks, sometimes longer.
