Interlibrary Loan and Resource Sharing

Interlibrary Loan, ILL for short, can be used to borrow library materials (books, DVDs, etc.) or obtain electronic copies of articles or book chapters currently not available from or not owned by MSU Library. MSU Library provides interlibrary loan services by agreeing to borrow from and loan items to other libraries throughout the world. As a current MSU student, staff, or faculty member, these services are available for you to use at no charge.

Requests may be made for interlibrary loans or resource sharing requests online at any time.
