Changes coming to InterLibrary Loan

2019-07-30 08:27:51

The Interlibrary Loan URL and logon procedure will be changing in August 2019.

The Interlibrary Loan Department will be rolling out a new service platform that will streamline your ILL experience. Our URL will be changing, so if you have the current ILL site bookmarked for convenient retrieval please update your settings when we go live in early August. No more registrations, new user names or additional passwords: the new ILL system will use your current CSU information along with your Library PIN. That’s it!

Once logged in, you will have the choice of requesting Article/Book Chapters, Books, or Audio-Visual/Other formats. When your citation for the requested material is complete, you will be asked to report your status with the university such as; Faculty, Student, Staff, as well as your designated area of study or department. Books and AV materials that arrive for you will be held on the ILL hold shelf as usual - so just ask for them the next time you stop by.

Articles will be supplied through a service called Article Exchange. No more multiple emails and various methods of retrieval! We will supply a specific link and password unique to the requested article. Article access information will remain active for 30 days or within 5 retrievals, whichever comes first.

These changes and upgrades will make it possible for us to continue to supply fast and efficient service while obtaining materials from across the globe. Pardon our dust as we make the transition into the new platform!

- Sarah Benedict, Coordinator, Interlibrary Loan Services
