Interlibrary Loan

ODY Interlibrary Loan Shelf

Our Services

St. Lawrence University faculty, students, and staff are eligible to use Interlibrary Loan services. Residents of St. Lawrence County who have a valid St. Lawrence University Libraries borrower’s card may also use ILL.  There are no fees for ILL services.

Students, faculty, and staff who are with one of the area’s Associated Colleges are welcome to use our facilities and collections but should use the interlibrary loan services provided by their institution.

The St. Lawrence University’s Interlibrary Loan staff work to comply with all of the guidelines in the American Library Association’s Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States.

The Interlibrary Loan Office is staffed by Julia Courtney and Carrie Sullivan. They process all of the requests for ILL materials. Questions about specific requests should be directed to Ms. Sullivan or Ms. Courtney at 229-5485.  For questions about tracking down especially ephemeral materials or concerns about finding materials that could not be acquired by Interlibrary Loan should be directed to Public Services Librarian Paul Doty at either 229-5483 or pdoty@stlawu.edu.

Interlibrary loan is based on libraries cooperating in good faith, and libraries certainly have the prerogative not to loan to an institution that has demonstrated it does not respect their property. Failure to return books borrowed through Interlibrary Loan or failure to take financial responsibility for materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan may result in a termination of ILL privileges.
