The William H. Hannon Library has over half a million books, and nearly 40,000 current journal subscriptions, most of which can be accessed through one of our 280 online databases. And our collection is growing every day.

But despite our rich collections, it’s inevitable that our students and faculty occasionally have research needs that require resources that we may not have on hand.

You may already be familiar with LINK+, where you have access to millions of books in 40+ academic and public libraries throughout California and Nevada, all for free. But did you know that our interlibrary loan services for books unavailable in LINK+ and articles unavailable through our own collections are also free for all LMU students, staff, and faculty?

This means, if you come across an article from a publication to which we don’t subscribe, all you need to do is request it, and most articles will be emailed to you within a week.

*We regret that, while we can get pretty much anything that has ever been published delivered directly to you, we cannot do it at the last minute! For more information about interlibrary loan at the Hannon Library, check out these FAQs.
