Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a way to borrow books, articles or other materials that the Blough-Weis Library does not own. Interlibrary loan should only be used after you have searched through the resources in the library's collection. Before requesting an ILL, search the Blough-Weis Library's online catalog for books in our collection and search our A-Z Periodicals List for journals that we own. You may also check with a librarian to be sure that we do not have an available copy of what you need.
You can manage all of your interlibrary loan needs via our new ILLiad interlibrary loan system. Note that logging on to ILLiad requires a valid Susquehanna University computer/email account. First-time use requires a very brief registration.
Our ILL service is for use by the faculty, students and staff of Susquehanna University. If you are uncertain of your eligibility, please contact the ILL assistant Steve Naugle at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 570-372-4016 or call the Blough-Weis Library reference desk at 570-372-4160.
Some additional information on interlibrary loan:
- You will be notified by e-mail when your books or microforms arrive (microforms must be viewed in the library).
- Periodical articles will be sent to you electronically using Odyssey or through campus mail if it is a printed copy. Either way, the articles are yours to keep.
- Book renewals are sometimes possible, but they must be requested through the Interlibrary Loan Department before the item's due date (see green wrapper on book for due date.)
- If books are not returned or renewed by the due date, a fine of 15 cents per item per day will be assessed from that date.
