Borrowing through Interlibrary Loan

With the fall semester one-fourth of the way over (yikes!) those midterm exams and final paper assignments are looming on the horizon already.  Is there a book your instructor has mentioned in class that you want to read?  Is there a prominent author in your field of study that you want to research?    The OU-Tulsa library is ready to help!

If you need a book or article from a journal that is not in our collection, we can often borrow it from another library on your behalf.  The process is called “interlibrary loan” or “ILL” for short.  We promise, it’s the best ILLness you’ll ever experience!

Before requesting material through ILL, you will need to establish an OU-Tulsa library account.  Once you have that in place, there is a one-time form to complete online before you’re ready to submit requests.   The ILLiad link is located on the  OU-Tulsa library website. Please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.

Keep in mind that borrowing through ILL is a multi-step process and not all material, including textbooks, is available.  Please allow a week or so for delivery.

Now, how many weeks until Thanksgiving break…  🙂
