How do I check out books from other libraries?


If you need to borrow a book or get an article that is not owned by USU you can use Interlibrary Loan services to get the items you need. Interlibrary loan requests and PDF delivery of articles are handled by the Resource Sharing and Document Delivery department of the library. ILLiad is the online system used to make interlibrary loan and document delivery requests. If you are a first-time ILLiad user, you must set up an account before making a request. New user registration for ILLiad is only required once, but be sure your information (especially your email address) is current.

If you need assistance requesting an item, here is an Interlibrary Loan library guide that can help. Loan renewals, if available for your item, must be done through the ILLiad system.
