When you borrow materials through Interlibrary Loan you will be given a due date that is set by the owning library. To renew materials borrowed contact the FSU Interlibrary Loan office. They in turn will contact the owning library to see if renewal is possible.

Interlibrary Loan

Do you need research materials the Ort Library does not own?

The Interlibrary Loan Office (ILL) exists to meet those needs. ILL can obtain many books and articles from journals not held in our library. Books, DVDs, periodical articles, dissertations, microforms, government documents, technical reports, and films are just some of the types of materials ILL can obtain for you. ILL services are offered to all FSU students, faculty, and staff.

The following types of materials are generally not available through ILL:

  • entire issues of journals
  • reference materials
  • old (published prior to 1800) or rare books
  • software
  • record albums
  • other forms of multimedia
