Interlibrary Loan

ODY Interlibrary Loan Shelf

Remote Learning Update

Interlibrary loan is now available only for journal articles which can be delivered electronically via ILLiad Borrowing books and other physical materials will resume via ILLiad on July 1.  There may be some delays due to library closures around the country.

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 ILL 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 ILL Office is staffed by Julia Courtney, who processes all of the requests for ILL materials. Questions about specific requests should be directed to Ms. Courtney at or 315-229-5485.  Questions about tracking down especially ephemeral materials or concerns about finding materials unavailable through Interlibrary Loan should be directed to the Collection Development/Acquisitions Librarian, Michelle Gillie, at or 315-229-5834.

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.
