What if WSU Doesn't Have What I Need?--Interlibrary Loan

Use interlibrary loan whenever you need to request an article from a journal Wright State University Libraries does not have. Interlibrary loan is free to current WSU students, faculty, and staff. Articles requested through interlibrary loan are delivered electronically.

The interlibrary loan link can be found on the library homepage under the "Services" menu in the top left quadrant of the screen.

Registration is a one-time process.  After that, you simply log into your interlibrary loan account using your WSU campus user name (w number) and password.

Either fill out the article request form on your own or use the "Request this article through Interlibrary Loan" link under the FindIt button.  The "Request" link under FindIt fills out the request form for you automatically after you login to your interlibrary loan account.

Distance learning students will receive electronic delivery whenever possible. Copies of book chapters and journal articles requested through Interlibrary Loan are generally received at the Wright State University Libraries within 9 days. Expect delivery of those articles or copies of materials owned by the WSU Libraries within 2 working days.
