Interlibrary Loan Services are available to current Louisiana College faculty, staff, and students. This service provides qualified library users the opportunity to obtain books, journal articles, and other resource materials which are not available through the library's collections. ILL services allow the Library to supplement its collection and enhance research opportunities. A maximum of 3 books may be requested. Additional books may be requested when one or all of the original 3 books are returned.
Before submitting a request for Interlibrary Loan Services, carefully check our existing resources on our library website.
