The IU Bloomington Libraries will request materials from other libraries for you if we do not own what you are looking for. Any current faculty, staff, or student may use these free services. Interlibrary Loan is sometimes referred to as ILL. We also use the jargon: Document Delivery Services.
For Help with Interlibrary Loan, see this FAQ.

UBorrow allows you to look up books, scores, and other physical items held by fifteen other Big Ten libraries, view their availability, and request exactly what you want. UBorrow delivery times are approximately one week, which is traditionally quicker than ILL, and most materials can be checked out for seventeen weeks. Learn more about UBorrow.
