   Check Availability First

Please check the SUU Sherratt Library catalog and online databases before submitting an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. We may already own the item that you are looking for, and it can save you the time and effort of submitting a request by going through the databases first.

For books: try searching the SUU Sherratt Library Catalog.

For articles only: try searching the journal title via the SUU Sherratt Library Journal Finder.

Please note: The purpose of interlibrary loan is to provide students and faculty resources for their personal research needs that are not owned by the Sherratt Library.  The library will not fill ILL requests for textbooks that are currently being used in classes. However, we may have your textbook on 2-hour reserve at the Check Out desk on the 1st floor of the library. Electronic books (ebooks) are not able to be requested through interlibrary loan.
