WorldCat and Interlibrary Loan

Once you've located a useful book in WorldCat and you wish to borrow the book from another library, click on the bar marked "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan"" (see arrow).  You'll then be given an online form to complete, in which the information for the book is already input by WorldCat.   If a book you find in WorldCat is owned by Stetson, there will be a icon noting this.
