Interlibrary Services

Updated July 2, 2020

Scanning of articles and chapters from the Thompson Library print collections through ILLiad Article Express service will begin July 20. 


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

  • Use Interlibrary Loan to request materials that are unavailable through OSU Libraries, OhioLINK, and SearchOhio. Learn more about delivery, timeframe, and limits on loan requests through Interlibrary Loan.
  • Use Article Express to request scholarly articles and chapter PDFs from OSU and non-OSU collections. Learn more about delivery, timeframe, and limits on requests through Article Express.
