Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services

We are an OCLC Express Library!

Can't find the article or book you need? Don't give up! Use Interlibrary Loan. It's free to CSU students, faculty, and staff. Interlibrary Loan uses a worldwide network of libraries to locate the exact item you need. An article in PDF format can often be delivered within 48 hours; other materials take longer.

How to Make an InterLibrary Loan Request

  1. First, make sure the item is not currently available through OneSearch.
  2. Log in to the Interlibrary Loan system. You'll need to go through the same Patron Authentication used for off-campus access to our licensed databases. This requires your CSU ID# and the same Library PIN you use to check your Library account.
  3. Select article, book, or other/audio/visual, then enter as much information as you have, and click submit to place your request.
