Interlibrary Loan is making some big changes this year. The biggest change is you no longer need to use a different service to request items that you can't find in CLICsearch. We're pretty stoked about this, but we know it will take some adjustment for everyone.
If you want to give it a go on your own - just use CLICsearch.
If you're not feeling confident in how to tackle this new approach - talk to us. We definitely want to help you get the materials you need as quickly as possible. Our librarians and student staff are willing to help you through the process.
Registered Users can continue to use ILLiad to do the following.
Use of the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service is being phased out Spring 2021. Existing requests will follow their current process, but new requests are not allowed on this platform. Please refer to the box above for more information or ask a librarian for help.
*All new Interlibrary Loan requests are now placed in CLICsearch. Please ask a librarian for help requesting items.
Once you've place a request here's what you can expect:
Delivery times vary depending on where the lending library is. Most local/regional items are available within a few days. Items coming from beyond MN partner libraries could take up to 10 days to arrive.
All local users are welcome to use our locker service.
If you live within 20 miles of campus, we do ask that you come and pick up materials. Pick Up Required - Radius Map
Students outside that radius can ask for materials to be mailed.
