Faculty Resources: InterLibrary Loan

This guide will help faculty with the resources that are provided to them by the library staff

Using Interlibrary Loan

When to use ILL

 Interlibrary loan is the next step available for use when you cannot find the resources you need through our library catalog (Library Catalog) or in our online resources (Online Resources). 

You can request books or articles.  Books can take up to 2 weeks to receive and articles generally take between 1-2 days. 

When you request books, please check the Library Catalog before requesting through ILL.

When requesting articles, please check the Full Text Periodical List and search for the Journal, Magazine or Newspaper title to see if we have it in print or online in full text. 

Access the Materials You Need!

What is Interlibrary loan?

Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows library users to request materials not owned by the Dixie University library.

How does interlibrary loan work?

 By requesting books and articles through the interlibrary loan system, you have access to the materials available in libraries across the United States.  Books will be sent by mail or courier, but you can get many of your scholarly articles more quickly through Electronic Delivery.

How do I set up an interlibrary loan Account?

  1. From the Library Homepage, click on Interlibrary Loan.
  2. Sign in using your Dixie ID and password.
