Faculty Research Assistant Resources

This is a guide for students working as research assistants for Northwestern Law faculty. Topics covered include research techniques for typical faculty requests, borrowing and interlibrary loan procedures, circulation policies and printing/photocopying

Interlibrary Loan

WorldCat is the catalog for libraries around the world.  It can help you discover books and articles beyond what Northwestern has in its collection. 

If you are requesting a book via Interlibrary Loan and the item should go directly to the professor when it arrives, write “For Prof.  ____”  in the Notes field and do not fill in the ISBN field on the ILL form.

Worldcat ILL request

You can also request books and articles directly using the Interlibrary Loan form.  This is where you can view your outstanding ILL requests and view electronically received articles.
