Interlibrary Loan


Interlibrary loan service provides the University's faculty, students and staff with access to research materials not included in the Library's collections. Books, magazine articles, microfilm, government publications, and many more documents can be obtained from other libraries nationwide. Although we do not charge a fee ourselves for the interlibrary loan service, we pass on to the user any charge levied by the supplying institution. Books are usually sent free of charge. Photocopy costs, when billed, are typically around $10.00.

You can now fill out interlibrary loan requests online. Please fill out the appropriate form and submit it. It usually takes eight to ten days to fill a request once it is submitted. We will notify you by phone or e-mail when your request has arrived.

You can download and print out an interlibrary loan form (in PDF format)) from our web site, and pre-printed forms are available at the library reference desk. You can submit a request by filling out one of these forms completely and legibly and leaving it with a reference librarian.

Note that while you do not need to fill out every box on a form, the more information you provide us, the more likely it is that we will be able to find exactly what you are looking for. Required boxes are marked with an asterisk (*).
