Interlibrary Loan

The InterLibrary Loan (ILL) department provides students, faculty and staff with materials not contained in the Katie Murrell Library's collection by borrowing from other libraries not only in Kentucky but the entire United States. Access to these materials is through the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) and their online database, FirstSearch.

Interlibrary loan is a free service and anyone can request a book.  The average loan time for a book is 5 weeks.  Our library also obtains copies of articles needed as well.  If you have any questions or need help locating a book, stop by the Interlibrary Loan Office. 

Requests may be made by completing the online Interlibrary Loan Request form online; by fax (270-384-4188), by e-mail (ill@lindsey.edu); or by phone (800-264-6483, ask for the library; after 4 p.m. CT, select "1"). Kim Hamlett is the ILL contact (270-384-8253).

If the interlibrary loan book has not been return by the end of the semester, your account will be billed $55 plus the fees from the lending library.

Most requests are filled within seven to 10 days, but they may take as long as three weeks. Therefore, plan research accordingly. The preferred method for notifying patrons when materials arrive is e-mail, so include an e-mail address in all requests.

Off-Campus patrons may request interlibrary loans through the same channels. Items will arrive in the ILL office and then be processed before being mailed directly to the student's home address. A return label and postage sufficient to return books to Kim Hamlett will be enclosed. Because items must be processed after arrival and then mailed, allow an additional five to seven days when planning your research.

Articles received through interlibrary loan are generally supplied free of charge and become the property of the borrowing patron. If an item (either book or article) has a charge associated with it, the patron will be notified for approval before the item is sent.
