1. Go to the SU Libraries home page. Select My Library Accounts on the left side of the page. Then select the Interlibrary Loan Login link.Log in using your SU username and password.

Once you have accessed your ILL account, select the type of source you'd like to request. This works with articles, books, and more. In this case, we are requesting an article.

Use the article's information to fill out the required boxes in the form and select Submit request.


Your request goes out to academic libraries across the US, and whomever fulfills your request will send the article as a file attachment to your Gulls email account. Aricle requests typically are fulfilled within the same day, so it's really fast!

Books usually take several business days to be sent through the US mail. The front desk at the library receives these, and students receive a Gulls email notification that the book is ready to be picked up.
