Guide for Students Enrolled in Online Courses: Registering for Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary loan?

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service whereby the library will get articles, chapters of books, etc., for you for FREE!  The service is fast, usually 1-3 days, but don't procrastinate: there are no guarantees.  Links to interlibrary loan forms ("Full-text Finder") are available in all our databases.  If full-text is not available, order it; but you must be registered for interlibrary loan (see below.)  Click here for the Library's ILL borrowing policies.

Registering for Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

The screen below shows the registration information you will need to create an interlibrary loan account.  Once you have created an account, you are "good to go" for ordering book chapters, journal articles,  and magazine articles not available in full-text through our databases. These items will come to you via email.  Click here to register for interlibrary loan.

The print books that you may need might be available at your local public library.  If not, you can request them using that library's interlibrary loan service.  Or,  you may borrow books from one of the reciprocal borrowing institutions listed here.

Request articles and book chapters using ILLiad.

Articles and book chapters will be sent electronically to your email address.  The copies are yours to keep.
