Interlibrary Loan Services

Interlibrary Loan provides current CSU Stanislaus students, faculty and staff access to materials not owned by CSU Stanislaus. Most books are borrowed for you from another CSU Campus (via CSU+) and arrive in 3 to 5 business days.  PDFs of articles and chapters are usually available to you in 1 to 3 business days.

Placing a Request

Check OneSearch first to access CSU Stanislaus Library materials.  For items not owned by the library, in OneSearch please be sure to Sign In to display Get It / "Get a copy" options to request that title. If you cannot find a desired item in OneSearch, you can complete and submit a blank Interlibrary Loan Request form. Contact a Research Help Librarian for help with requests.
