InterLibrary Loans

Requesting InterLibrary Loans Online

The Interlibrary loan request process is now fully online and integrated with our CST/Worldcat Discovery catalog. Start by finding your item in the catalog. (Hint: to find holdings outside of the CST Library, select "Libraries Worldwide" as the Library and then Sort by "Relevance Only.") Once you find the item in our catalog, simply click the blue "Request Item" button and fill out the form. Note that the Patron ID is the number found just above the barcode on your library / student ID card.

Specific Information for Article/Chapter Requests

If you cannot find a specific article or chapter listed as a distinct item in the catalog, search for the larger work (the journal or book) in which the article or chapter appears. Click on the "Request Item" button for that larger work, but in the Notes field of the form BE SURE to provide a FULL BIBLIOGRAPHIC ENTRY (APA, Chicago, or MLA) for the article or chapter, including the article/chapter author, title, and starting and ending page numbers. If this information is missing, the article or chapter request will be rejected and the person making the request will be instructed to fill out the form again.
