You have a couple of options: first see if the item is available in our Western North Carolina Library Network by searching our 'Books & Media' search and select the 'ASU, UNCA, WCU' radio button. If you find print materials held by either ASU or WCU, simply click on the 'Request' button to have them sent to UNCA's Circulation Desk for you. Typically this just takes a couple of days. 

The other way to request almost any book, article, thesis, or dissertation not held in our network is via Interlibrary Borrowing (aka Interlibrary Loan or ILLiad). To place an Interlibrary Borrowing request, simply click on 'Interlibrary Borrowing in the middle of our homepage (or under the 'Using the Library' dropdown box). These requests take from a few days (for articles often) to a week or two for books that need to be physically mailed.
