A Service You Should Know About: InterLibrary Loan

A Service You Should Know About: InterLibrary Loan

 

If the library does not have (digitally or physically) what the article or book you need, you can get it through InterLibrary Loan.  You log into Tipasa (interlibrary loan service) and fill in the details, or they may be “pre-populated” (filled in for you) by a database in Quicksearch.  Depending on the complexity of the loan request, whether it is a book, chapter, or journal article, results may come in a few days to a week (and occasionally much faster).  You will receive journal articles and book chapters as .pdf files.  Usually you have to log back into Tipasa and follow the link to retrieve the article.  One tip: sometimes your e-mail application may send ILL notices (from notices@worldcat.org) to your junk or clutter file.  Ask a librarian if you need more help, and you can find help online at all hours here: https://library.sacredheart.edu/ill
