Interlibrary Loan

New System starting August 18, 2017

We are changing our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system, and this will mean you need to sign up for a new account even if you have used ILL previously. To create your new account, you will need to use your D number (including the D) and create a password. Once you have created an account, you can make requests either directly in the system or by visiting our databases and using the direct link to Interlibrary Loan.

Please create your account here:

The old system will be disabled on September 17, 2017

You will no longer be able to request loans through the previous system as of August 18, 2017. From August 18,2017-September 17, 2017 you can access the old interlibrary loan system to download items or copy your history of requests. This history will not be transferred to the new system. To copy your history:

  1. Login to the old system at
  2. Under the View area on the left-hand side of the screen, click on All Requests
  3. You will see a list of previous requests
  4. Copy or screenshot the list

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Susan Rice or Debby Andreadis.

Borrowing Policies

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the borrowing and lending of books and other materials between libraries. If Denison (DEN), CONSORT, or OhioLINK does not have the material you need, ILL will try to obtain it for you from another library. The responsibility of the ILL office is to locate materials for DEN patrons working on course-related projects. This service is not meant as a substitution for our own collections. ILL is primarily used to get copies of journal articles from journals that are not owned by Denison or available online.

Any DEN faculty member, emeritus, currently enrolled student, or currently employed staff person may place an ILL request. Special Borrowers, Licking County residents, and adults who reside outside Licking County but work in Granville should use local public libraries for ILL services.

Materials not obtainable through Interlibrary Loans:

  • Textbooks (books needed for an entire semester)
  • Books owned by Denison, CONSORT, or OhioLINK
  • Books that are part of the Library's Reference Collection
  • Rare or fragile items, such as manuscripts
  • Multi-volume sets, reference books, or genealogical materials
  • Current-year publications
  • Entire issues or volumes of periodicals
  • Most audiovisual items (videos, CDs)

For more information about ILL, visit the Library's Main Office (1st Floor), or contact Susan Rice.
