Before you start the literature review process, take the time to set up the tools you will need.
ILLiad is the service you use to place interlibrary loan requests for materials not owned by UT Libraries. You can also request books in our collection that are currently checked out or missing.
We deliver books, articles, and other materials through ILLiad to remote students, faculty, and staff as well as UT agricultural extension and research agents. See our Distance Education page for details about delivery services.
Citations management software allows you to keep track of your references, insert citations into your document, and create bibliographies. UT Libraries helps support EndNote, Mendeley, and Zotero. See our citation management guide for more information.
