Request It is a traditional interlibrary loan service for the University of Wyoming. This service is only available to currently enrolled UW-students, staff, and faculty. Non-UW patrons, including alumni, are not eligible to use Request It through UW Libraries. However, non-UW patrons may use the interlibrary loan through their local public or other library.

UW students, faculty, and staff are automatically provided access to Request It and do not have to create an account. Simply log on using UW/WyoWeb username and password. The first time that Request It is used, a digital form appears that must be completed. This form contains the patron's contact information and choices regarding how notifications of received material will be communicated.

To access Request It, click on the "Request It" icon in the "Services" section of the main library webpage, on the "Request It" icon located on library catalog or article search pages, or click on the key-shaped icon in the upper-right corner of any UW Libraries webpage.

Sign on using WyoWeb credentials. Complete the required information on the form. Users MUST use their UW email address. Disregard the section asking about payment and invoices. There is no charge for UW students, faculty, and staff. Select the preferences for receiving notifications by email and text. Click on the "Submit" button on the bottom of the page.

Note that Request It links clicked from within the catalog or article searches will auto-populate the required fields of the request form for books and articles (except for the very first time it is used when the contact form is completed).

Patrons will receive a message in their UW email account that the item is available. Books and media are picked up at the library. Articles are downloaded from the "Electronically Received Items" section of the Request It application.
