Interlibrary Loan Services During Covid


Interlibrary loan is fully operational during the university's online only course delivery period.
  The buildings are closed, but we are still working to serve you.


Renew/Return ILL Books Scans from ISU Print Collections Request Books via Interlibrary Loan Request Articles/Book Chapters

During this time, we are requesting that Interlibrary Loan items be renewed. If a renewal is not possible, please:

  1. Retain the item in your possession (preferred option.) We are NOT charging overdue fees.
  2. Return the item to the Pocatello campus Oboler Library outside drop box. The drop box is located to the south of the main doors.

We are providing scans from our print (physical) collections during this time.  As we are in the building limited hours, delivery time is 24-48 hours (not including weekends).

Use the ILLiad Interlibrary Loan Article request form to submit a request.

We are accepting and processing requests for books and other materials that must be returned to the lending library. Please note that many libraries remain closed and do not have access to their print collections, so it may take some time to obtain the items. Some may not be available until the crisis is over.

When your item arrives at the library, we will mail it to the address listed in your ILLiad Interlibrary Loan account. (You will receive an email letting you know that the item is on its way to you.)

To update your address, log in to your ILLiad Interlibrary Loan account and select "Change User Information" from the Main Menu.

We are accepting and processing request for scans of articles and book chapters.

Many other libraries are closed and do no have access to their print collections and may only be filling items that are available electronically. As a result, your request may be delay until the COVID-19 crisis abates.

If we are unable to fill your request at this time, we will keep it and reprocess at a later date. We will send an email If you will no longer need your item, please Cancel your request.


We appreciate your patience during this time.


Interlibrary Loan News and Tips!


As a reminder, the ISU Library does not obtain textbooks via interlibrary loan. The loan periods for these items are too short and, therefore, not available for the entire semester. Thank you for your cooperation.
