Books From Other Libraries & Purchase Suggestions
If the Library does not own the book you need, you can place a free request through
Interlibrary Loan and the Library will borrow the book from another institution. Books and other items
usually take 7 to 10 business days to arrive.
Current UVU students, staff, and teaching faculty may also borrow materials from other
Utah academic libraries through the Utah Academic Library Consortium. Contact the
institution you plan to check out materials from for borrowing guidelines; they may
require identifying documents.
