Q. If the Library does not have the book I need, can I request that it be borrowed from another library?

Answer

You can borrow items that the Library does not have in its collections via our interlibrary services (CSU+ & ILLiad). Please note: Requesting services are only available to current SF State students, staff, and faculty. In order to borrow books via interlibrary services, you will need to follow five easy steps (described below). On your request form, you will need to designate whether you would like to pick the book up (starting Feb. 8, 2021) in the Library or if you would prefer to have the book mailed to you. For help requesting books via interlibrary services, please email dds@sfsu.edu.

 

Step 1: On the Library's homepage, type the name of the book you would like to borrow into the search box and click the "Search" button.

Step 5: Fill out the ILLiad form. Under the COVID-19 Delivery options, please select either "Ground floor pickup" (starting Feb. 8, 2021) or "Mail to home". Once you have completed the form, click on the "Submit Request" button to submit your request. You will be notified when your book is ready to be picked up (starting Feb. 8, 2021) or when it has been mailed to the address you provided.
