Q. What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and how do I use the service?
Interlibrary loan (ILL) supports the research of students and faculty by affording access to a wide variety of materials that are not owned, or accessible, by McKee Library. In order to facilitate access to a larger collection of materials, we foster collaborative and reciprocal borrowing-lending relationships with various types of libraries throughout the world.
SAU undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff may borrow materials via ILL. Interlibrary loan is not available to non-SAU students, alumni, community card holders, or docent card holders. Requests can be submitted directly from McKee Library databases, or manually entered in the individual's account. Students and faculty can access their interlibrary loan account online.
Complete details can be found in the interlibrary loan policy on the library's website. For additional information on interlibrary loan services, please contact: Donald Martin, Digital Resources Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 423.236.2013.
