Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery Services

Interlibrary Loan supports the instructional, research, and scholarly activities of current Idaho State University faculty, staff, and students by providing access to materials not owned by the ISU Libraries.

Interlibrary Loan Tips!


Interlibrary loan is not a viable option for textbooks.  Most ILL items can only be checked out for 4-8 weeks and many are not renewable. Due to these restrictions, a better option may be to purchase or rent your textbooks. You can also ask your professor to place items on Reserve at the Main Circulation Desk.


Check Your Accounts!

We STRONGLY recommend regularly checking your ILLiad Interlibrary Loan accounts. You can easily monitor the status of your requests and check for recently arrived items. 

  • Books (and other items on loan) ready for check-out will have the status of "Customer Notified via Email" on the main screen. 
  • To check due dates and request renewal, click on the "Checked Out/Renew Items" link under "View" in the Main Menu.
  • To retrieve articles or book chapters, click on the "Electronically Received Articles" link under "View" in the Main Menu.
