Things to Remember about ILL

Please keep these things in mind when considering using ILL:

  • ILL should be used carefully
  • Check SOUTHcat to make sure we do not have the book either available in print or electronically
    • When searching for a book, do a title or author search--DO NOT use the ISBN only. We may own a different edition or version of the book (ex. hardback vs. paperback)
    • If the material is in our holdings, the ILL staff will cancel your request
  • Check Our Journal List to make sure we do not have the journal available in print or electronically
    • If the material is in our holdings, the ILL staff will cancel your request
  • When you use ILL, check WorldCat for libraries that have your material
    • Check again to be sure USA Libraries does not own your selected material
      • In WorldCat, look for the green highlighted "University of South Alabama," indicating we own that item
    • Remember, libraries in-state are often faster at delivering materials than those libraries at great distances
    • Rare books and archival material will not be sent through ILL
  • Use the "Click here for ILL" link in WorldCat to import the bibliographic material into the ILL system
