|Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Borrowing from Other Libraries|
Interlibrary loan (ILL) service is available for SUA students and employees to obtain materials that are not available in the Ikeda Library.
Ikeda Library does not charge patrons for interlibrary loans. However, the lending library usually charges SUA up to $20 per item, so please be selective when making requests. Interlibrary Loan books cannot be transferred between patrons. The item will be checked out only to the person who originally requested the book.
Use the online forms below to place an ILL request or extend the due date. Please fill out all the fields in the form to ensure that the correct item is ordered.
Loan period is set by the lending institution. The norm is 4 weeks. Audio visual materials, reference books, rare books, and new books may be difficult or impossible to obtain. Many libraries do not loan them.
ILL items are subject to recall from the lending institution any time. Upon request, they must be returned immediately. ILL items must be returned to Circulation Desk directly. Library return boxes should not be used to prevent items from being damaged.
An ILL request usually takes 3 to 5 business days to arrive on average. It may take longer if items are from another state or a very busy library.
Late fine: 25 cents per day per item up to replacement cost or $10 if the item is returned
