HON 250: Humanistic Tradition: SLU Interlibrary Loan

Library Instruction Session, October 30, 2013; October 29, 2014

ILL Policies

What is ILL and document delivery? Interlibrary loan supplements the library collection by making books and articles available from other libraries.

Who can use it? The faculty, staff, and students, wherever located, can use the service for research or teaching.

What can be borrowed? Books, except for newly published or reference books, and copies of journal articles. Software, videos, and other non-print materials cannot be borrowed from other libraries. We cannot ask other libraries for textbooks.

How do I submit a request? First, check our library's online catalog to be sure you're not requesting something we already have. Then complete the online form. Note that there are separate forms for books and for articles. You must complete a separate request for each article and book, as each is treated as a separate transaction. If you are requesting that materials be sent to non-university emails, please check spam mail if you filter your mail.

What does it cost? Sometimes the library who sends the item(s) will charge a small shipping and handling fee, usually less than $5.00. Please indicate in the proper space on the form the maximum amount you are willing to pay if the library does require a service fee. If you leave this line blank, we won't order the item if it costs money.

How long does it take? We can have items here as quickly as 3 days, but it can take up to two weeks.
