Interlibrary Loan Services

Interlibrary Loan

Welcome to the AUM library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) department. The AUM Interlibrary Loan Department is dedicated to locating and borrowing materials to meet the information needs of students, faculty, and staff. The Library also lends its resources to libraries across the nation and around the world to support global education.

Before placing an interlibrary loan request, please be sure you have read our policies and procedures.

AUM faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students may request materials not owned by the Library through Interlibrary Loan. To avoid delays, always check to see if the library owns the item before submitting requests.

  • Before requesting books, check our online catalog
  • If you are requesting a magazine or journal article, check Find Journals 
    (also known as Serials Solutions). To use Serials Solutions, type in the title of the journal or magazine. This search will tell you if the journal or magazine is owned by the library and/or is available full-text through one of the library's databases.

PLEASE NOTE: The Interlibrary Loan department CANNOT fill requests for textbooks; materials for class, reserve or group use; or books assigned as required reading for a class.

Interlibrary loan items can be picked up at the Access Services Desk on the first floor of the library. Overdue fines for ILL materials are $2.50/day. Renewal requests for ILL items can be made by contacting the ILL department.
