Interlibrary Loan and Copy/Scan

OUHSC-affiliated users can utilize the Bird Library's document delivery services to request:

  • Items that the library does not own (Interlibrary Loan) 
  • Materials that the library does own which you would like our staff to copy or scan for you (Copy/Scan Service)
  • Both of these activities are managed with a program called ILLiad and provided free to all OUHSC-affiliated users
