If you can’t find a book or an article in the library, try Interlibrary Loan. Fill out the online Interlibrary Loan Request form (paper forms may also be found in the library office). You may generally expect to receive the material in one to two weeks.
It’s always a good idea to start your research by talking to one of the librarians.
If you’re looking for ideas about a book or a film title, try searching Melvyl, the University of California catalog.
For a magazine or newspaper article, try looking in ProQuest.
