The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Office borrows materials from and lends materials to other libraries in the United States and many other countries.
ILL handles requests for:
- copies of articles and book chapters
- requests for books not available at UMSL or through other MERLIN/MOBIUS libraries
- requests for books and articles in the ITE storage area
Please check in-house resources (MERLIN/MOBIUS/Prospector catalogs & electronic subscriptions and databases) before requesting materials via ILL, and limit requests to ten or fewer per week so we can process all requests in a timely manner.
All current UMSL faculty, staff, and students are welcome to use ILL services. If you have any questions, please contact us at (314) 516-5066.
Due to a system error, notifiications were not sent for two recent requests: 184618707 and 184697189. If you requested one or both of these items, please contact Mary Zettwoch at firstname.lastname@example.org or (314) 516-5082.
UMSL changed their ILL system from ILLIAD to Tipasa on December 28, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Zettwoch at email@example.com, (314) 516-5082 or Ted Ficklen at (314) 516--5066.
If you have requests still in ILLIAD, click here to log in. Items will be removed from ILLAD after 30 days, so please save copies on your own computer. ** All access to ILLIAD will end on February 1, 2018. **
