Human Services: Interlibrary Loan

Subject Guide for Human Services


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been changes to Pollak Library services and resources. Please consult the interlibrary loan section on the Pollak Library's updates page.

ILLiad is a free interlibrary loan service available to current Cal State Fullerton students, faculty, and staff.  Before requesting an item through ILLiad, it is important to know that the Pollak Library pays a cost of approximately $22.00 to process each request.  We, therefore, encourage responsible use of the ILLiad interlibrary loan system.

If the book you want has been checked out, you first will have the opportunity to request an available copy from another CSU through the CSU+ service found in OneSearch.  If the book you want is not available from another CSU, you also may try finding a similar item by searching the related Library of Congress subject headings for your particular title.

As you conduct your research for journal articles, try to locate similar items if the full text of your particular article is not available in print or online.

If after taking the above steps you determine that interlibrary loan is the best option for obtaining the specific resources you need, we welcome you to submit your request through ILLiad.

Please feel free to sign up for your ILLiad account by placing your mouse over "My Library" on the Pollak Library homepage and then clicking on the "My ILLiad" link.  A link to "My ILLiad" is also available below.
