Request Articles, Books, and More
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service offered by the MSU Library that can be used to
borrow library materials (books, DVDs, etc.) and obtain electronic copies of articles
or book chapters not owned by our library. We are part of a worldwide ILL network
of libraries that lends to one another.
As a current MSU student, staff, or faculty member, these services are available for
you to use, usually at no charge (visit our FAQ section for exceptions).
Request materials from other libraries using Interlibrary Loan (ILL) or request scans
of articles or chapters owned by the MSU Library.
For more information on using this service, please see our general interlibrary loan policies and FAQs.
