Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
ILL is a FREE resource that provides you access to full-text articles that CSU does not have.
Set up your account and request items by going to the ILL page and logging in with your eID and password.
A couple of hints:
- When you're in a database, use the button to see if full-text is available. If not, click on the ILL link to submit a request. (The request form will auto fill this way!)
- ILL requests are generally processed within 24-48 hours. You'll get an e-mail alert when the article is available.
- Short on time? ILL can be used to request document delivery of articles from print journals owned by CSU Libraries.
