Welcome to Interlibrary Loan (Tipasa) at Sacred Heart University. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a FREE borrowing and loaning service. ILL obtains books, articles, book chapters, and other research materials not owned by Ryan Matura Library for students, faculty and staff. You must create an account to use this service.
Tipasa is the resource sharing management software used by Ryan Matura Library to process all ILL requests. The Tipasa system allows patrons to place ILL requests, track requests, check due dates, and view ILL borrowing history. Each item must be requested online through the Sacred Heart University Library website through the patron’s Tipasa account.
