Interlibrary Loan and Psychological Research

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service in which our library will order items from other libraries for you to download or check out locally. 

This service  is extremely useful for Psychology, as many of the most useful articles or books we may not have, but other libraries do.  Plan on using ILL at least once or twice for your PSY 290 project, and perhaps more when you're doing more advanced projects.

Watch the short videos linked below to help you get started with setting up an account and ordering materials using the Interlibrary Loan service.

What is Interlibrary Loan?


Requesting Materials Through Interlibrary Loan.


Interlibrary Loan Sign Up

Before you start requesting items through ILL, you'll need to sign up.  Your account id and password can be the same as your Laker Net ID, but doesn't have to be.


If you have already made an ILLIAD account, you can sign in to see what you've requested and download articles you've received.
