Answer

If you belong to another library system and would like to obtain an item from Omaha Public Library, you must start with the interlibrary loan department or librarian in your local library; they will make the request, normally through OCLC, an electronic interlibrary loan system. Many libraries give their patrons access to the FirstSearch database, which allows you to find your item in the OCLC system and submit a request directly to your library. They will then process it. You can also access the OCLC network of library catalogs at http://www.worldcat.org/, but you cannot submit requests directly there. Ask your local librarian about your library's interlibrary loan policy!

I hope this helps--let us know if not!
