Remote Online Library Support: Get Items From Other Libraries

This guide will support you while you are working remotely and will direct you to Library resources and support.

Using Tipasa to get Materials from Other Libraries

What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a retrieval service in which the Library will borrow articles, books, etc. for you from other libraries that are not owned in print or online. Use the Tipasa system to place your request.

Sign into Tipasa HERE to submit your request.

Placing a Request

Requests can be made two ways:
Through a database such as Ebscohost, ProQuest or Discovery. This will pre-fill the item’s information into the request form.
Use this method if you are already searching within a database or if you do not have the item’s full information. 
For more information, go here.

Check the Library's Catalog/Journal Collection First

Before placing your Interlibrary Loan request, please make sure we do not own the book or have access to the journal article.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
