Library Services

The University Center- Rapid City does not have on-site library facilities. However, students can access resources at their home school’s library.

Interlibrary Loans

Inter-Library Loan (ILL) is a borrowing system designed by universities to allow students the ability to conduct quality research, even if the materials are unavailable to them at their home library. At the UCRC, this program serves a critical function. If the book you need for your paper or research project is at one of the main campuses that is not your home school, you have the ability to reserve that book even if you are not a student at that institution.
