Online Learning: Accessing Books & Articles

Getting Books and Articles

Materials such as books, articles, patents, theses, and reports can be ordered through ILLIAD ( the Interlibrary Loan & Article Delivery Services Office) at the Van Houten Library. The Interlibrary Loan staff will arrange for the delivery of books and photocopies of articles by email. Materials not owned by the NJIT library will be obtained from another library. Please make sure you check our database to see if you have access to an article or book before ordering it.
