Services

Interlibrary Loan

When you can’t find the resources you need on campus or through another CLIC library, Interlibrary Loan can bring the resources to you. Interlibrary Loan services are available to current CSP students, faculty, and staff.

Requesting materials via Interlibrary Loan

You can request materials via Interlibrary Loan using CLICsearch. Use the Citation Linker in CLICsearch to request materials.

Once you’ve filled out the Citation Linker form, you will need to log in with your CSP username and password to see the appropriate request form.

You can check the status of your requests in your CLICsearch account.

Contact the Library’s Research Desk for assistance finding and requesting materials.

Restrictions

  • We do not fill ILL requests for items that are used as textbooks. Please consult with the Bookstore for these items.
  • You must be affiliated with Concordia University to use Interlibrary Loan services.
  • Only distance students (students living outside the Twin Cities metro area) can have requested items mailed to them.

Time & Delivery

Request times can vary depending on the lending library. Articles typically take 1-5 days, and loans can take 3-7 days. Book requests may take up to 2 weeks if from out of state.

Articles are delivered in PDF format to your CSP email address.

Books are available for pick-up at the Circulation Desk. They will be returned to the lender library if not picked up within 2 weeks. Please bring your Concordia ID to check out these items.

Renewals

You may request a renewal; however, it is at the discretion of the lending institution as to whether a renewal is granted and for how long.

Send your renewal requests to ill@csp.edu. Please include information about the item you wish to renew.
