Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?

Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows you to borrow materials not available through St. Catherine University.

Allows you to borrow:

  • articles from journals to which we do not have access
  • books not in our collection or in CLIC libraries
  • other research materials from other, non-CLIC libraries

Available to:

  • current students
  • current faculty and staff

What should I do before placing a request?

What should I do before placing an Interlibrary Loan request?

  • Check Google or Google Scholar. Several articles are available in full online.
  • Check our catalog if you're looking for a book, an article, media, or if you just want to discover items. We have access to several titles, and we might just have what you're looking for!
  • Search WorldCat to identify your item and its citation.

If you find what you are looking for but are unable to make it to campus, place an Interlibrary Loan request!

If you can't find what you're looking for in our holdings, place an Interlibrary Loan request!

See FAQs, ILLiad FAQs, our ILL page, or contact ILL Staff if you have further questions.
