If you need an article that’s not in our databases or a book that’s not on our shelves, send a request to the Interlibrary Loan Department, and we’ll get it from another library.


Two types of loan are available to Northwestern students, staff, and faculty.

Items can be shipped to any additional campus location (Enid, Woodward, or Ponca City) by courier. We can ship to other locations by mail, but you will be responsible for return postage.

Intra-Campus Loan

Request books or videos through the online catalog.

  1. After selecting a title, choose Request NWOSU-Owned Item to request it.

  2. You will be prompted to log in. Use your student, faculty, or staff I.D. number and password.

  3. Fill out the interlibrary loan form with your personal information, including your NWOSU email address.

  4. Be sure to identify to which campus or home address we should send the item. Type the name of the campus or the complete address into the Notes box.

  • Option 1: Request a book or other item held at another library by clicking the link labeled Request Item in the item’s record in the catalog.

  • Option 3: Request books, videos, articles, or other resources using the interlibrary loan request form below.

When requesting, include as much information as possible.
