EagleSearch Help

This guide will help you with performing, refining, and saving searches using EagleSearch.

To request an item in EagleSearch

In order to request an item the Hunt Library does not have, you will need to sign in to EagleSearch and use “Expand your search” search scope to see all Interlibrary Loan request options. If you can’t find the item you want to request in EagleSearch you can still request it using the blank Interlibrary Loan request form.

Scans of book chapters or articles the Hunt Library has in print
