Interlibrary Loan


Interlibrary loan (ILL) is available to all current SHU students, faculty, and staff. Use the links below to request books or journals from other libraries. Please note that only items not owned by Reeves Library may be requested. Please allow one to two weeks for your materials to arrive. Journal articles may be emailed to you or mailed to the library for pickup. You will be notified via email when your materials are ready. Interlibrary loans cannot be renewed. 

Interlibrary loan is a free service, but fines will be added to the requestor's account during the following circumstances:

  • A $1.00 charge per requested item if it is already owned by Reeves Library.
  • A $5.00 charge for each book that is not picked up by the due date, or each article that is not picked up within 30 days.
  • A $1.00 per day per item overdue charge for all materials.
