Interlibrary Loan provides access to material not available at the Library. Current CSU faculty, students, and staff are all eligible for the service. Patrons should first check the Library Catalog, electronic collections, and Illinois consortium I-Share catalog before submitting their requests. Every effort will be made to secure the item requested as soon as possible.
Making a request for the first time is a bit different than making second and subsequent requests.
|Request for a Loan||Type of Request|
|for Books||Online||Print and mail (PDF)|
|for Articles or Chapters||Online||Print and mail (PDF)|
Please use the online forms only for the first time and a single citation. For multiple requests, an MS Word® file with all the citations on the same page is preferred. Attach this to email for firstname.lastname@example.org. This way, you don’t have to fill out too many forms with repeated information, and your MS Word file will make it a lot faster for processing. Thank you.
