Searching for Books & eBooks through the NNU Riley Library

The short video below demonstrates how to search for books and eBooks owned by and available through NNU Riley Library. If you have additional questions, please inquire at the Research Help Desk.

Searching for items not owned or accessible through the NNU Riley Library

Sometimes the sources you need are not readily available through the NNU Library. However, you may still access them through a service called interlibrary loan. You request the item, the item is sent to the NNU Library for you to use for specific amount of time. The short video demonstrates how to search for and request items not owned by the NNU Library

Note: Due to publisher license restrictions eBooks cannot be requested through interlibrary loan. However, after you search for an time, click the hyperlinked title. There is a button labeled, "Explore Editions and Versions." If the item is available in print format, you can click that title and follow the procedure demonstrated in the video. If you are just needing a chapter from the book, you can just request that, too, using the Article/Chapter request form on the Interlibrary Loan guide page. Ask a librarian for assistance if you have questions.
