Library Services for Virginia State University Faculty: InterLibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan:

  •  VSU faculty, staff and students may request materials that are not owned or available in the VSU Libraries collections. This service is also used when an item is checked out, missing, lost or not in the preferred format. ILL will request journal articles, book chapters and books from other libraries on your behalf (textbooks excluded). Users will be notified via email when items arrive at the library for contact free pick-up. Journal articles and book chapters will automatically be sent to your VSU email account. You may contact the Interlibrary Loan office directly at jmlill@vsu.edu.
  • Due to the Libraries closure, all Interlibrary Loan items can be considered renewed until 11/24/20. No action is needed on your part.

InterLibrary Loan

For items that are not available at the VSU Library you can submit an Interlibrary Loan request through the electronic system, ILLiad. This system enables VSU students, faculty, and staff to submit requests, check the status of their requests, renew materials and communicate with the Interlibrary Loan Office all through the Internet. Automatic e-mail notification to VSU faculty, students, and staff occurs at the moment a borrowed book or photocopy is received in the system. First-time users of the Interlibrary Loan System will need to create an account.

The Library participates in the Richmond Area Library Consortium (RALC) which enables faculty and students to borrow books from other libraries in the consortium. Members of RALC include:  J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, John Tyler Community College, Library of Virginia, Randolph-Macon College, Richard Bland College, Union Theological Seminary & Presbyterian School of Christian Education, University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth University,  Virginia State University, and Virginia Union University.
