CRJU 3710 - Drugs in America: Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a sharing of materials between libraries.

  • Some materials may be difficult or impossible to obtain including current popular titles, genealogy books, reference books, rare or expensive materials, and fragile items.
  • Loan periods vary due to each lending library's policies.
  • Length of time it takes to receive an item can be affected by a number of factors including staff shortages at the lending library, shipping method (usually Library Rate mail), distance to the lending library, etc.
  • Textbook requests are not accepted. (You might have success with textbooks in GIL Express)
  • How to request an Interlibrary Loan

    Send the Interlibrary Loan request to the Interlibrary loan office. 

    Allow plenty of time before an assignment is due, and be sure to include your name and contact information!

    At least 25% of the requests sent to the ILL Dept. are for books in the DSC Library or articles from the 129,000 full-text journals in the GALILEO & DSC databases so...

    Please check Roberts Library's GIL catalog (for books) & GALILEO holdings (for journals) before requesting.  No waiting for delivery if it's here!
