Renewing ILL Materials

When materials are borrowed through Interlibrary Loan, the owning library (not FSU) assigns a due date. To renew materials borrowed from another library, please contact the Interlibrary Loan Office. Library staff will request a renewal from the owning library on behalf of patrons.

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:

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