The MSU Library provides interlibrary loan (ILL) services for current students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide this to alumni, retirees, or the general public.
ILL is an agreement to borrow from and loan to other libraries. You can request books (no current semester textbooks), articles, video or audio recordings, government documents, theses/dissertations, conference proceedings, patents, and newspapers. If we can find a source, we’ll try to get it!
Most article requests take 2-3 business days while most loan requests take 3-7 business days
