COVID-19 ILL Changes

Due to COVID-19 ILL book requests may take longer than normal to fulfill to due reduced staff and that many libraries are closed or not lending items through ILL. EOU students, faculty, and staff can request EOU owned books and other items as well as books from other libraries and online articles through ILL. See instructions below on how to request articles and books.

Articles

If you are sure EOU doesn’t have the article, go directly to the article request form.

Otherwise, check to see if articles are available at EOU by using the instructions on our Finding Articles page.

Citations in article databases often include a Find It button Find It@EOU that will perform the search for you.

Article requests usually take about four days, but always allow as much time as possible.

Most article requests are fulfilled with digital copies. You will receive an email with the article attached.

Books

View our Request Books help page for instructions on how to request books from EOU.

Books requested from WorldCat often take seven to ten days and possibly longer due to COVID-19. Always allow as much time as possible.

Conditions of use depend on the policies of the lending library. The amount of time you have to use the book may vary, and renewals may or may not be allowed. Lending libraries may also place other restrictions, such as requiring that materials be used within the library, or that photocopying is not permitted.

To request a renewal for a WorldCat item, contact the Interlibrary Loan department by email or phone at least four days before the due date. Be sure to include your full name and the title of the item you wish to renew.
