Intro to Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that expands Library user access tremendously.

This service is restricted to students, faculty, and staff only

By connecting you to the world of knowledge available through tools like WorldCat and various other databases, you are empowered to find more and better resources than ever. 

ILL allows you to borrow articles and books from other libraries around the world at no cost to you!

ILL Process

Prior to submitting any ILL article request, please verify that the Zondervan Library does not already have access to the material. 

  • Do this through the Journal Finder by searching for the Periodical title.

ILL Requests are vetted by ILL Library staff and submitted to potential lending Libraries. We will let you know via email as soon as possible when your items have arrived.

  • Articles are delivered electronically to your ILLiad account.
  • Books will be placed on "hold" for you behind the Check Out desk for pick up.
