What if you don't have what I need?

Interlibrary loan (ILL for short) is a service we provide for you free of charge.  If you need an item or an article that the Ely Library doesn't have, we request it from another library using a nationwide network.  

We are in contact with hundreds of other libraries and have access to millions of items!

Please allow 7-10 days for delivery.

Using Interlibrary Loan Materials

Only current WSU students, faculty, and staff may use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services.

Loan periods are determined by the lender.  Some may let you have the book longer than others, and some may allow renewals.

When you receive email notification that your item has arrived, you may pick it up at the front desk with your WSU ID card.  ILLs are charged out on your library record.

OVERDUE FINES for ILL items are $0.25 per item, per day.
