Interlibrary Loan

Our free Interlibrary Loan service allows you to borrow books, articles, and other materials that are not already owned by McConnell Library.

To access Interlibrary Loan, Log in or set up your account.

The first time you log on, you will be taken to a Personal Information form. After you have completed the form, you may begin requesting materials by submitting request forms, located under “New Request” within Interlibrary Loan. You may request items that are not owned by McConnell Library, or that are owned by McConnell but are currently checked out.

We will submit your request to other libraries within one working day. The item’s arrival date depends on how quickly a lending library is able to fill your request, plus transit time. Once your item has arrived, you will be notified by email. An item’s loan period is determined by the lending library.

You may request a renewal from your “Checked Out Items” page in Interlibrary Loan, unless the item is marked “No Renewals” on the front cover. If you would like for someone other than yourself to pick up your ILL materials, you must list that person on your personal information page under “Authorized Users.”

Interlibrary Loan services may be used by current Radford University students, faculty, and staff.
