When K-State Libraries doesn't own a book, journal article, film or other resource* that you need for your research, we will try to borrow it for you from another library through Interlibrary Loan.
First, create an account and then request materials. Most of the time, it's totally free for you!
When you use the Get It button in our databases, the "Not Available? Request from Interlibrary Loan" option will take you to the Interlibrary Loan request screen.
Interlibrary Loan requests can take:
- 2-5 days for electronically received copies (PDFs of articles, chapters, sections from books 50 pages and under)
- 3-10 days for books, videos, and anything else we get through the mail
*Sorry, we are unable to borrow textbooks through Interlibrary Loan.
