Interlibrary Services

We provide Interlibrary Loan and Article Express (document delivery) services through the ILLiad request system to Ohio State faculty, staff, and students in degree-granting programs across all Ohio State campuses.

  • Use Interlibrary Loan to request materials that are unavailable through Ohio State University Libraries, OhioLINK, and SearchOhio. Borrowing physical items from other libraries takes 7 to 10 days on average to receive.
  • Use Article Express to request scholarly articles and chapter PDFs from Ohio State and non-Ohio State collections. Most article and chapter scans take approximately 1 to 3 days for electronic delivery.

ILLiad Accounts

Use of both Interlibrary Loan and Article Express requires an ILLiad account.
