What if PLU doesn’t own the book/article you want?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service that allows current PLU students, faculty & staff to receive books from other libraries. Some things to keep in mind when using ILL:
Plan ahead! Articles usually arrive in your email in 2-5 days--books can take 5-10 days
Books can be picked up on the ILL shelf on the 1st floor. Just take them to the Circulation desk for check out.
The Interlibrary Loan link can be found either,
a) within the catalog or database, or
b) in the navigation bar at the top of the library website
