Students must sign into their library account on ODIN to generate interlibrary loans. Direct any questions regarding ILL’s to the library administrative assistant.
Searching for Material in Other ODIN Libraries. On any ODIN page choose “Libraries” from the menu at the top of the screen. Searches can be performed on any or all ODIN library catalogs chosen from this list. Locate material by using one of the search options. Select the record by choosing the corresponding “view” link on the left side of the screen. From the menu bar near the top of the screen, choose, “Interlibrary Loan Request”. Enter any required information and choose “Go”. If the request was successfully submitted, a message stating this will be displayed.
Interlibrary loans are assessed a minimal fee to cover postage, plus any additional lending library charges. Patrons will always be consulted before accepting additional charges required by a lending library. Charges must be paid at the time material is picked up.
ILL Delivery Time
For requests made through ODIN, allow at least one week for material to arrive. Material found in WorldCat or requested from out-of-state may require a longer delivery time.
As a courtesy to the lending library, requests for renewal should be made before the material's due date. Requests after the due date may be denied. Contact the library administrative assistant to request an ILL renewal.
A non-refundable $5.00 per item penalty plus the cost of the ILL is charged to the student’s account for material not picked up before it must be returned to the lending library.
