If MeL doesn't have it

If MeL doesn't have your book, there is still hope!  Use ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan) for books not available through FLITE or MeL.  Don't leave an ILL request to the last minute though.  They often arrive in a few days, but it may take several weeks!  Visit link for more ILLIad information or skip to the ILLiad login,
