Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a free service available to students, faculty, and staff.  It can be used to request:

  • articles not available through the Ashland University Library's databases or print periodicals collection;
  • books unavailable through OhioLINK or SearchOhio;
  • a copy of a single chapter from a book. Use the Article Request Form for a chapter request.
  • for copies of a dissertataion literature review, use the article request form and specify pages requested.



Article Request

Articles requested through interlibrary loan are e-mailed directly to the requester.

Book Request

Books requested through interlibrary loan are delivered to the main campus Library's Circulation Desk. Requesters will receive an e-mail informing them when items are ready to be picked up.
