SLU Libraries

Interlibrary Loan

All University Libraries use ILLiad to enable users to place, track, and keep a history of interlibrary loan/document delivery requests from a personal online account. All transactions, including renewals, are done online. ILLiad also makes it possible to receive articles and photocopies electronically as Adobe PDF documents.

Books

To request the loan of a book not available at a SLU or Mobius library, complete the electronic request form available through:

ILLiad at Pius XII Memorial Library
ILLiad at Medical Center Library
ILLiad at Vincent C. Immel Law Library

Books requested must not be currently available through any SLU library or the MOBIUS network. Occasionally, there will be a fee (up to $35.00) for borrowing a book. If a fee is required, your acceptance to pay the fee is needed before we can order this item.

Articles

You may obtain copies of articles from journals not available at Pius Library by filling out the article request form available through ILLiad. Requested articles must be from journals not currently available at Pius Library, or not available electronically through Pius Library's electronic journals or accessible databases.

Book Chapters

You may obtain copies of chapter from books not available at Pius Library. If multiple chapters are needed, request the book. Copyright prevents us from processing multiple chapter requests. To request a chapter, fill out the book chapter form available through ILLiad.

Audio-Visual

To request audio-visual material, complete the request form available through ILLiad. These items may have shorter loan periods, no renewals, or remain at Pius Library. There may be a loan fee up to $35.00. If a fee is required, your acceptance to pay the fee is needed before we order this item.

Dissertations and Theses

To request a dissertation or thesis not available at a SLU or MOBIUS library, complete the form available through ILLiad.

Many colleges and universities within the US and Canada have made digitized copies of their dissertations and theses available through the database ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Full Text.

Some universities loan their dissertations if they have a second copy. The format may be hardcopy, microfilm, or microfiche. There may be a loan fee up to $35.00. If a fee is required, your acceptance to pay the fee is needed before we can order this item.

Arrival of Materials

You generally should expect most photocopies to arrive here within 3 business days (Monday-Friday). Books should arrive within 14 business days.

Notification

Our preferred method is to send an e-mail message to your e-mail account notifying you of the arrival of your requested item, cancellation of your request, or the need of more information before we can order your item.
