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
- First, make sure the item is not currently available through OneSearch.
- 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.
- Select article, book, or other/audio/visual, then enter as much information as you have, and click submit to place your request.
