Find Resources with Interlibrary Loan

Submit or view an Interlibrary Loan request

If you are unable to locate resources for your research from either the local or I-Share catalogs, you also have the option to request items through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). ILL enables access and delivery of materials held by other libraries around the world. This service is free of charge to students, faculty, and staff of the College. It is not available to non-Augustana users. 

There are three ways to request materials from other libraries:

  • Use the request form directly on ILLIAD.
  • Use the ILLiad request button within OneSearch to request materials. 
  • Search for and request the item from WorldCat to borrow materials from libraries around the world.

Once a request is received, library staff members will search for the item and attempt to obtain it from another library. Articles and book chapters are delivered to your email as a PDF within 24-48 hours. Physical items (books, DVDs, scores, etc.) typically take 5-10 business days (does not include weekends) to arrive from the lending library.

For more information about ILL, call 309-794-7585.
