Interlibrary Loan

Using Interlibrary Loan

For more information on Interlibrary Loan (ILL) please see the section below. To access to the ILL request forms, please visit the following pages in MySTLCOP:


Purpose

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) provides access to material unavailable in our library and MOBIUS libraries. All requests for material are subject to copyright restrictions.

Eligible Users

Interlibrary Loan is available to registered STLCOP students, staff, faculty and preceptors. A valid STLCOP campus network login and password are required to access the request forms.  Questions about acquiring STLCOP campus network access should be directed to the College I.T. Department at helpdesk@stlcop.edu.

Costs

There are no fees associated with obtaining books and articles through Interlibrary Loan.

Regarding MOBIUS:

Before submitting an Interlibrary Loan Request for a book, users are asked to check the MOBIUS Catalog, located on the main Library web page under "Books, etc." If a book is available at a MOBIUS library, simply click on the "REQUEST THIS ITEM" link, located in the middle of the page where the book was found.  A request will automatically be sent to the owning library, which will prepare and ship the book to STLCOP within two to three business days. Any Interlibrary Loan Request for a book owned by and available at a MOBIUS library will be returned unfilled to the requester, with instructions on how to place a request using MOBIUS.
