Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service allowing you to get books and articles not available at SMSU from other libraries.


Login to My Account to request interlibrary loans, check the status of your existing requests, and ask for renewals.  You will use your StarID and password to log into the library's system, just as you would to SMSU email and other services.

Other book search options
