ALERT: As of August 24th, we are accepting loan requests for physical books, in addition to article and book chapter requests. Please allow 10-14+ days for books to arrive. Factors delaying books include limited or no access to physical collections at many libraries, lowered staffing levels, quarantine times for physical items, and slower courier and mail delivery times. If you need only ONE chapter from a book, please submit a book chapter request to get it faster.
St. Thomas students, faculty, and staff may request (free of charge) books, articles, and other library material not available in the CLICsearch system from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan. Libraries nationwide cooperate to share materials, so you don't even need to know which other library has the material you want--we track that down for you. Request materials through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan management system. ILLiad enables you to easily track your ILL requests.
