When items are not available in the University Library collections, St. Cloud State University faculty, staff, and students may use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request items from other institutions.
You can check the status of your ILL requests by logging into My Library Card.
Occasionally, ILL cannot fill your request because we are unable to identify a lending library or document supplier for the item you requested. You will be notified about any request that cannot be filled.
The lending library decides whether to grant a renewal. Send your renewal request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the title of the item, your name, and your SCSU TechID. Please monitor My Library Card for the new due date.
Please email the ILL office at email@example.com or call 320-308-3083 with questions.
You will be billed for the replacement of items if they are lost, damaged, or overdue. The cost of replacement is determined by the lending library.
Overdue ILL items may result in a block on your library account until the items are returned or the replacement charge is paid.
Some items are difficult to borrow through ILL. These items include:
