Interlibrary Loan

If the Gustavus library doesn’t have a particular book or article you’re looking for, you can request it from another library through interlibrary loan. An easy way to submit an ILL request is by clicking the yellow "Find It" button that appears under the item you've searched for. The button will take you to a new page, then click the link under "Borrow from Other Libraries" and log in with your Gustavus account. After assuring that the information in the request from is correct, click "submit request." Alternatively, you can follow the steps outlined below:

  1. On the left side of the library homepage, click the link “My Library Account” and login using your Gustavus account.  
  2. Submit a request for a book or article using the “Create ILL Request” links on the right side of the page.  
  3. Provide as much information as you can in your request to expedite the process, and be sure to request your material well ahead of your project due date.  

Requests are generally fulfilled within a few days to a week, depending on the availability of the material and the library it is borrowed from.  For more information, FAQs, and a video tutorial, see the ILL page on the library website.
