Currently ILL is continuing to process all requests for articles/copies. Please note that due to many library closures any submitted requests for print books or other physical materials outside the UH library system will not be fulfilled at this time. Requests for physical materials will remain in your ILLiad account in temporary hold status.
Depending on availability, we may be able to obtain one chapter per requested print book. You may note in your request that you want a specific chapter in lieu of the requested book.
