Requesting Books and Articles from Other Libraries

Service may be delayed, as many other libraries are not currently lending print materials

Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) provides current USF students, staff and faculty with materials that are not available at their local USF library. This includes transferring materials between USF libraries, and obtaining materials from other libraries all over the United States and internationally. Log in below to make your request via ILLiad, an automated Interlibrary loan/Document request system.

Registration Information

You must specify a home campus (i.e. USF Libraries: Sarasota-Manatee campus, Shimberg Health Sciences Library, St. Petersburg campus, or Tampa campus) when registering to use ILLiad. You may only select one home campus. The home campus is determined by the location of your advisor and class registration, and not your actual home address. All requested items will be available through that campus.

Copyright Issues

Due to copyright issues, the library cannot retain articles. Therefore, it is important that you check materials electronically delivered for any problems, such as missing or illegible pages within one week of delivery. If you find any errors after that time frame, you will need to submit a new request for that article.
