Basic Cite-Check Process

If you need a book:

  • Check the Online Catalog to see if Regent owns what you need. Also check Law Databases and Subject Guides using the navigation menu. 

    If not:

  • Check OCLC WorldCat to find out if the item is owned by a local member of the Tidewater Consortium.  Remember that items held by local libraries are not eligible for ILL. 
  •  If the book is not available locally, use the WorldCat info (don't forget ISBN and OCLC Number!) to complete and submit an ILL request.
