Who's eligible?

Currently enrolled students and current faculty and staff may request items from the Dixie State University Library Interlibrary Loan Department for their research and teaching at Dixie State University.

Interlibrary Services

If the Dixie State University Library does not have a book, journal, or other publication that you need, you may request a copy from Interlibrary Loan Services, or "ILLiad". This is a reciprocal system wherein libraries share materials in their collections.


  • Articles are delivered as PDF files usually within 2-4 business days.

  • Books borrowed from other libraries are delivered via U.S. Mail, UPS, or FedEx.

Depending on the availability of the material and the method of shipping, items can take longer than expected to arrive, so start your research early so that we can better serve your needs!
