NSU Interlibrary Loan & COVID-19

Last Updated: July 10, 2020

Dear Campus Community:

JULY 10 UPDATE: Physical borrowing request forms have now been reinstated. Please be aware that all requests for physical items (books, DVDs, etc.) are subject to delays and cancellations at any time. Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, any pending requests for physical items may take longer to fulfill due to courier delays/shutdowns, other libraries' ability to send items, etc. All incoming borrowing items will be quarantined for 3 days before they are available for checkout.

Previous communication:

JULY UPDATE: Unfortunately we are not yet ready to resume borrowing of physical items (books, audio/visual, etc.). This is a very fluid situation. Many of our primary lenders are not lending materials. NSU is an outlier when it comes to operating status, and we need to wait for other libraries to re-open and resume services before we can offer these services to you.

Due to these ongoing issues, and the rapidly changing environment with COVID-19, our current goal is to resume this service in early/mid July after Independence Day. This is a moving target and largely depends on our partner libraries and their operational status.

In the meantime, we can request digital scans of portions of material as needed. Thank you for your understanding!

Reminder: Now that all NSU library facilities are open, ILL items that have not been renewed were due back by June 30, 2020. Fees/bills may soon be assessed on these items. If you are enrolled in the Summer or Fall 2020 semesters and would like to request a renewal, or if you are unable to return items at this time, please contact us at for further assistance.

JUNE UPDATE: Now that all NSU library facilities are open, ILL items that have not been renewed are due back by June 30, 2020. If you would like to request a renewal or inquire about your current due date, please contact us using the information below. We will be reaching out to those affected. Any ILL items that are overdue and not returned by June 30, 2020 may be subject to replacement and/or processing fees.

Items can be returned at either the Broken Arrow or Tahlequah branch. If you are located in Tahlequah, you may deposit the item in the book drop (located at the South entrance facing Seminary Hall).

Effective immediately, NSU Interlibrary Loan will not process any incoming requests for physical items (books, DVDs, or any other items sent through regular mail). We want to mitigate the spreading of COVID-19 in any manner and most libraries around the world are suspending loan services during this time. We have removed the online ILL form for physical items.

However, we are completely dedicated to processing all digital requests to the best of our ability. There are some restrictions from U.S. Copyright Law but we will attempt to fulfill requests for articles and book chapter/portions when possible. We encourage you to utilize this service during this online-only instructional period as much as you wish.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I request a digital scan of an entire textbook?
No. Due to copyright restrictions, only a single chapter or reasonable portion is allowed.

Can I request materials to use for my class or to post in Blackboard?
Materials requested through Interlibrary Loan cannot be distributed to others.

We will continue to update this Interlibrary Loan page with further updates/changes accordingly.

We want to thank you for using Interlibrary Loan throughout this semester and we hope that we can assist you during this transition. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions and we appreciate your patience as we respond to all inquiries and process all requests.
