Due to staffing and budget reductions in LIS, we are no longer able to continue traditional ILL services for CD requests. As of Feb. 1st we will no longer be borrowing or lending CDs through ILL.

You can specifically search for CDs and other sound recordings by selecting “Sound Recordings” from the “View Entire Collection” drop down box on the NExpress search page.
