Interlibrary Loan ILL

Where do I see my ILL Account?

My Account

To see your Interlibrary Loan Account go to Tipasa from the Library website from the Interlibrary loan portal box.

Order Books

To order books go to WorldCat from the Interlibrary Loan Portal Box. I like the advanced search box   Or if you know what you want click here and "Create" a request

Order Articles

To order Articles go to any of the library online Databases, search for an article if the article is not readily available in PDF or HTML, click on Wolfie. The citation will fill automatically.  Add the required info., and You'll have it in a few hours to a few days. If you know the article title and citation go to and "Create" a request.

ILL allows you to request items from other libraries in Colorado or the United States.  Articles are sent via PDF on the cloud. Articles are yours to keep, while books, DVDs, CDs, dissertations, and other Items are typically loaned from six to twelve weeks.  Many items can be renewed, and renewal requests can be made automatically through My Account in Tipasa . 

FAQ Answers:  How long can I keep an item?

It all depends on the loaning library.  Most libraries loan items between six to twelve weeks.

FAQ Answers: Can I request renewals if I need more time?

Unless the item's label says NO RENEWALS, you can make a request from your ILL account

FAQ Answers: Are text books available on ILL?

Currently used textbooks are not ordered on ILL.  If an older edition would work, then there is a possibility of ordering a request.  ILL Get It does request print copies from all books.

FAQ Answers:  I need to keep an item past its due.  What can be done?

Some items are renewable.  Most ILLs can be reordered if a renewal isn't available.
