Interlibrary Loan and Frequently Asked Questions


Question: What Can I get from Interlibrary Loan?


Materials We Do Not Own

ILL works with libraries both national and international to get you access to materials that the Poynter Library does not own. This material is subject to the usage rules and due dates set by the lending library.

USF Libraries Materials
ILL will transfer materials owned at other USF Libraries to the Poynter Library.

Interlibrary loan cannot usually obtain:

  • Textbooks
  • E-Books
  • Standardized test books
  • Computer software
  • Entire issues of periodicals
  • Special media formats (ex. albums and kits)
  • Very old or rare material
  • Media (*exception for faculty, only media from other USF libraries)
