Interlibrary Loans

While you are a student at Boise State University, you have access to a free service called Interlibrary Loan (ILL) which allows you to obtain journal articles and books that the Albertsons Library does not own. Requests for articles take 1-3 weekdays and request for books take a week or more. If you have not used the service before, got to Interlibrary Loan and log on with your Boise State user name and password. If you have not used the service before,  you will have to fill out a registration form.

In most cases, you can request interlibrary loans through the library's databases and the request form will be filled out for you, but you can also go directly to the Interlibrary Loan page and manually type in a request.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If you select the Find It button, and you see the message "No electronic access is available for this item," you have the option to select the button below that says "Request item through Interlibrary Loan" (see below). Another library that owns the article will scan it, and a PDF of the scan will arrive in 1-3 weekdays (at no charge to you). You can have up to 10 active ILL requests in the system at once time.
Note: ILL requests for books take an average of one week to arrive.
