Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Policies & Procedures

Interlibrary Loan & CSU+

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

From other CSU Libraries - CSU+: Search for books in OneSearch and use "Request from CSU Libraries: CSU+" to have them delivered to the CSU Library in 3-5 business days.

Learn more about CSU+.

From other libraries worldwide: Use OneSearch or WorldCat to search for books and articles. Then use "Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request, and Request document via ILLiad" to have books delivered to the CSUDH Library and articles delivered electronically. 

Or, if you have the full citation for the item you need, login to your ILL account and fill out the request form.
