Need a book or article that is not available at PC or through PASCAL? For students, faculty, and staff the library will borrow items from other libraries across the United States. Please check with a Reference Librarian to be sure that Thomason Library does not have access to a book or article before completing an ILL request.

Request an Item

Please send an email to with as much information as you have available about the book or article you are requesting.


Articles usually arrive within 5 – 7 days, books within 7 – 14 days. We will notify you by e-mail when your ILL item has arrived. Once notified, you can pick up your item at the library’s Circulation Desk.


There is often no charge for the ILL service. However, some libraries may charge a fee before they will lend certain items. We will pay the first $10 of any fee charged – let us know how much you’re willing to pay.
