|Electronic Interlibrary Loan Request
Using this new electronic system you will first and only once create a profile, then use the system to make Interlibrary Loan requests and track the progress of your requests online, anytime from any location. Go to ILLiadand the first time go to “First Time Users” to establish an account. If there are any questions about this new system, please call the Interlibrary Loan office at 985-448-4633. This new system is designed to eliminate the current paper-based system and make interlibrary loan more efficient.Purpose of Interlibrary Loan
Libraries cooperate to advance scholarship and learning by lending books and other materials to each other. Interlibrary loans are intended to give access to unusual materials occasionally needed that the local library may not own. As such it is not to be used as a substitute for materials already in the collection.Ellender Memorial Library offers this service as a supplement to the Library’s collection. Interlibrary loan is a privilege, not a right. There is no guarantee that if a request is sent, the material will be loaned. Every effort should be made to use this Library’s resources first, before requesting material from other libraries.Location and Service Hours
The Interlibrary Loan office is located on the second floor of the Library in Room 223. The office is open from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. Materials may be picked up or returned to the Interlibrary Loan Department during these hours. Holiday hours are posted in advance.ILL services slow down during the holiday season (usually December 12 – January 2), because most libraries do not wish to risk losing materials in the holiday mail.Who May Use Interlibrary Loan
ILL services may be used by enrolled NSU undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and other Ellender Memorial Library cardholders with an acceptable borrowing status.
