New Faculty Orientation Guide: Interlibrary Loan

An overview of Priddy Library services.

Request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL)


Before considering ILL, check the USMAI catalog to determine if the book you need is available at any of our USMAI librariesIf it is, request the book.

If the book isn't found in the USMAI catalog, you're ready to make an ILL request. To begin, go to your home institution library. First time users must register in the ILL system (ILLiad). You may need your 14-digit barcode to register and access ILLiad. 

Always indicate in the note field your preferred pickup location. You may choose the Priddy Library or your home institution library.


Articles that are not available at the Priddy Library or at the home institution library in print or electronically may be requested through ILL.

Articles that are only available in print at the home institution library can also be requested through ILL. This service is limited to faculty, staff and students at USG and provided by the home institution library.
