Alternatives to Interlibrary Loan

When the material you need is not available in the library... Interlibrary Loan is not your only option.

You may also want to consider these alternative sources of material:

  • eJournals, eBooks & Media
    Numerous journals are now available online. The library web catalog offers the opportunity to link to many of them. Articles may be printed at $0.06 per sheet.
  • OhioLINK and Affiliated Library Borrowing
    When the book you need is checked out, in repair, or otherwise unavailable for borrowing, you can request another available copy from an OhioLINK or Affiliated Library. To expand your search to include other OhioLINK Libraries, click on "OhioLINK Central" in the WSU web catalog." To place a request, Click on "Request this Item" in the web catalog, and enter your name and ID number.

If the item you requested is immediately available from the first institution to receive the request, your shipment should arrive in 3 to 5 business days. Call the Circulation Desk at (937) 775-2525 to check on the status of your request.

OhioLINK Borrowing is a free service available to all Wright State University faculty, staff, students, Alumni, and Friends of the Libraries members.
