Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Unfamiliar with Interlibrary Loan (ILL)? It is a way that the library can borrow a book, article, or DVD that we don't own. There is no charge for this service.

If you find the item in a database such as the Film and Television Literature Index, you may see a link to Check for Full Text. If we have the item, great! If not you will see a link to Request article via Interlibrary Loan. Click the link, check to make sure that all required information on the form seems correct, and Submit. Or, if you found a citation on your own, you can fill in the required information on the appropriate ILL form.
