Interlibrary Loan

If you need a book or periodical that the Schmid Law Library does not own, you may request it through interlibrary loan. You may make a request by filling out the ILL form located under "Quick Links" on the Schmid Law Library home page.  Please note that this process can take up to two weeks, depending on the item requested, so it is important to make these requests as soon as possible.  If you have questions about interlibrary loan, please contact Kris Lauber. She can be reached at 402-472-8304 or
