Interlibrary Loan, PRONTO, and Document Delivery

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services

 involve requesting and obtaining materials (articles, book chapters, and books) that the USF Libraries do not have but that other libraries have. As USF moves courses and other work online, you can still submit requests for electronic materials (usually journal articles and e-book chapters). If you provide a valid mailing address, print materials can be mailed to your home once the library receives them. Service may be delayed, as many library in the southeast are not currently lending print materials.

All Campuses: Interlibrary Loan

If you currently have Interlibrary Loan items borrowed, you need not return them until the USF Libraries re-open. All due dates will be adjusted accordingly.


PRONTO services

Document delivery services involve scanning print, microfilm, and microfiche materials (journals or book chapters) and making them available online. If the library is not physically accessible, this service may not be available.

Books & More involves manual delivery of materials to faculty offices. Although we will not be able to hand-deliver materials, we may mail them or arrange a central pick-up location.
