Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services

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.

What to do:

  1. First, make sure the item is not currently available through OneSearch.
  2. Log in to the ILLiad* Interlibrary Loan system. First-time users need to register.
  3. Place your request.

*ILLIAD is an acronym for Inter Library Loan Internet Accessible Database.

Interlibrary Loan will no longer deliver books to the departmental offices of faculty and staff via Document Delivery Plus (DD+). Please pick these materials up at the User Services Desk.
