Interlibrary Loan

If the Library does not own the book or article you need, we will try to get it for you.

Through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), the CSUDH library works with other libraries locally and around the country to borrow the item and have it delivered to you at CSUDH or electronically on the web.

Search & Request Materials to ILL

Books: Use WorldCat to search for books, and then follow the prompt for "Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request, and Request document via ILLiad".

Articles: Use your preferred article database to find the record for the article you need, then click “Find it @ CSUDH” in the upper left hand corner, and follow the prompts to "Request document via ILLiad."

If you have the full citation for the item you need, go can straight to your ILL account and fill out the request form.
