If you require a journal article or book from another library, you can request it by filling out the interlibrary loan request form below. Before submitting your request, you must check the NUHS online catalog and/or the NUHS Journal Holdings List and the database A-to-Z for availability in your NUHS library. Any requests for materials available at your NUHS location will be returned to you.
Do you know a good book, journal, AV, or electronic resource that the LRC doesn't own? Recommend it for purchase by filling out a Recommendation Form. We will try to purchase it if funds are available. (Also available at the Circulation Desk.)
The LRC faculty and staff can help you use the LRC. Contact the reference librarian or the student reference assistant if you wish to schedule in-depth instruction for yourself or a group (e.g. how to search a database, how to search the catalog).
Computers are located along the southeast or rear wall for the LRC.

Reservations are made in-person at the circulation desk or by telephone up to one weekday in advance. University committees and departments may reserve a room for up to 3 consecutive hours.

NUHS Staff Picks
Being Mortal by Atul Gawande is a must-read for anyone who expects to get old or who has aging parents (so, basically everyone). Dealing with the difficulties and decisions of aging and end-of-life issues is depicted in humane, thoughtful and heart-felt real-life vignettes. Being Mortal is a compassionate book to initiate the discussions that we need to have. This book also is available electronically through eReadIllinois on our eResources page.
