One option to consider when the ULS doesn't have the item you need is to place an Interlibrary Loan request.

Start at the ILL request screen and click ILL request page.  Login with your PITT username and password.

Once you are logged in, select article request.  After you have made your selection, complete and submit the online form. Among the information you'll need to enter is the 15-character number from your PITT ID. The first time you enter a request you'll need to complete all the fields with your info.  For subsequent requests, the form will autopopulate with your information. When the item is available you'll receive an email notification.

If our Interlibrary Loan staff are unable to locate an item for you to borrow, they will contact you.
