Interlibrary Loan Services

Books and journal articles not included in Andruss Library’s collections may be requested via a service called “Interlibrary Loan” or “ILL.”  Please, ALWAYS check our BU Books & More online catalog (for books) or the Periodical Title List (for periodicals) before ordering through ILL to make sure we do not own what you need.

Obtain Journal Articles via ILLiad

Use this link to obtain copies of journal articles that are not available online and not owned in print by the Library.  You will need your HuskyID and network password to submit any requests. Consult the Interlibrary Loan web page for more information, or contact Andrea Schwartz, Coordinator of Interlibrary Loan, 570-389-4218, aschwart@bloomu.edu.

Obtain Books via EZBorrow/PALCI or Illiad

To request Books the Library does not own, use:

EZBorrow/PALCI (Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc.)

EZBorrow/PALCI is an unmediated borrowing system encompassing over 50 academic libraries in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York and New Jersey.  Users may search and request books for themselves. Delivery time is usually within 3-5 days.  Books borrowed via E-Z Borrow may be kept for 12 weeks.  You will need your Lib # (on your BU ID card) or your HuskyID and network password to submit any requests.

ILLiad.

All Illiad requests are channeled through the ILL Office so they may take longer than E-ZBorrow requests. Try E-ZBorrow first. You will need your HuskyID and network password to submit any requests via Illiad.

 

 

Document Delivery for articles and chapters the Library owns

Document Delivery

Faculty and students may also request electronic document delivery of print and microfilm journal articles owned by the library by using ILLiad, the library's interlibrary loan service. Copies of book chapters owned by the library may also be requested. You may fill out a form here, or use the library's link resolver within our databases or Google Scholar to fill out the form automatically. To use the link resolver, look for links labelled 'Check Availability' or 'Article Linker' in your search results. For more information, visit the Document Delivery page or call the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery office at 570-389-4218.

Document Delivery is for items owned locally; Interlibrary Loan is for items we must borrow from other libraries.  However, please use our ILLiad system for BOTH types of requests.  Library staff members will determine the best way to fill your request.
