There are two ways to initiate an ILL request:

  • ILLiad: May be used for all materials whether from CSU libraries or other libraries. If the requested materials are electronic articles, or book chapters, they may be retained by the requesting patrons. Loans of physical materials must be returned by the date due on the item.
