  • Perform the search
  • When you find a book you want that is not at SU, click on the location link
  • Click the request button if the item is available
  • Log in with the information from your Gull Card and complete the request
  • The book will be available for you to pick up in in 3-5 business days

Books from Interlibrary Loan/Worldcat

Interlibrary Loan is a great tool that allows you to borrow a book from libraries outside the USMAI system.  Before you submit a request, make sure that we don't own the book here at SU or at one of the other USMAI institutions.  If not, you can submit a request through ILL Express

You can also search Worldcat, which is a huge catalog of materials from libraries all over the world.  If the book you want is in a library, chances are pretty good you will find it in Worldcat!  If you find the book you want and you know it is not available at SU or any USMAI campus, then you can click the Find It button and then request the book through Interlibrary Loan.  The advantage of doing it this way is that you don't have to fill in all the information about the book!
