Useful Spaces and Services

Interlibrary Loan Overview

When K-State Libraries doesn't own a book, journal article, film, or other resource that you need, we'll try to borrow it for you from another library. This service is called Interlibrary Loan. We can obtain most types of materials through Interlibrary Loan, but we are not able to borrow textbooks. 

How much does it cost?:  

Interlibrary Loan requests are usually handled at no out-of-pocket cost to K-State students, faculty, and staff - the costs are paid by the Libraries. If there is a cost for the loan, you will be asked ahead of time if you still want the item, but this is very rare.

Using Interlibrary Loan with Get It:

When you use the Get It link from one of our databases, it will take you to a screen of options, including the Interlibrary Loan request screen.

Get It

Place an Interlibrary Loan request. Fulfillment of requests can take:

  • 2-5 days for electronically received copies (typically articles, chapters, or sections from books 50 pages and under)
  • 3-10 days for books, videos, and anything else we get through the mail
  • Distance patrons need to plan a little more in advance and add additional 3-7 days for UPS delivery of physical materials

You can read more about Interlibrary Loan at the Frequently-Asked Questions page or on the Interlibrary Loan page.
