To obtain loans (i.e. books, videos, etc.) that are not available at UW-La Crosse or from another UW Library and articles that we do not own.
Interlibrary Loan services are available to all UW-La Crosse students, staff, and faculty (including emeriti) at no cost to the user. If an item costs over $50, the user will be contacted to verify that the item is worth the expense. If the user deems the item is worth the cost, the library will procure the item at no cost to the user.
Please use the Online Catalog to check all UW System libraries for books. If you find the item at one of our sister (UW) institutions, please use Universal Borrowing.
For articles, use the Periodicals List to ensure that Murphy Library does not own the item. Periodicals may be in Current, Bound, Microfilm, Microfiche or electronic format.
After this step, please access the ILLiad system from one of the following addresses:
Log in to your ILLiad account with your NetID
Log in to your ILLiad account with your Voyager ID number
When the material requested is received, users will be notified by UW-L e-mail. The email will indicate how to access your materials. All books, videos and some articles will be held for pick-up at the Circulation Desk at Murphy Library. Articles are delivered electronically, either as a PDF file on a web site, or delivered as a PDF file attached to an e-mail. You have 30 days to download the PDF file before it is deleted.
If you lose an item which needs to be returned, you will be charged the cost set by the lending library.
All requests must be in compliance with the National Interlibrary Loan Code, other regional, state, and local resource sharing agreements and copyright law.
Lending libraries may place restrictions on the use of any loaned item and may request that the item be returned prior to its due date.
Questions or concerns regarding Interlibrary Loan should be directed to the Interlibrary Loan Office.
