Interlibrary Loan

Current CSUF students, faculty, and staff may borrow books, journal articles, and other materials from lending libraries if the Pollak Library does not own a copy. All Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests are processed electronically through our ILLiad service.

This service is free in most cases. The Library will advise you ahead of time if are personal costs involved. Physical items, such as books, can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.  Articles are delivered electronically to your ILLiad account. Some ILL items are renewable, depending on each particular lending library.
