How To Request A Book Through Interlibrary Loan

It happens to the best of us: you’ve found a great book by searching our catalog, but it’s not available at our library! What can you do?

One option is to request the book through our Interlibrary Loan system.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided to obtain materials that are not available at Union University and to loan materials found in The Logos to other libraries. Two ILL systems are used by Union – OCLC and Docline. OCLC is a nationwide interlibrary loan system used by libraries of all types. Docline is a nationwide system used primarily by health sciences libraries.

Current Union faculty members, staff and students may request library materials not available in The Logos, within guidelines. Guests do not have access to ILL.

What does the ILL process look like for you?

  1. By filling out an ILL request form, available on the library website, you can request to have the book delivered to our library.
  2. Then, the book will arrive through “snail mail,” which can take 1-2 weeks.
  3. The book will have an “ILL cover” on it, which indicates its due date.
  4. When you’ve finished the book, you will return it to the library’s Circulation desk.
  5. The book will be mailed back to the library from which it was borrowed.


For questions about ILL, check out the library’s Interlibrary loan policies.
