NSU Interlibrary Loan & COVID-19

Last Updated: May 1, 2020

Dear Campus Community:

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 will be cancelling all pending physical item requests that had not yet shipped to us and 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:

I already have a physical ILL item checked out. What happens now?
You may consider that item renewed regardless of the status until the library re-opens. If you are located in Tahlequah, you may deposit the item in the book drop when you are finished with it (located at the South entrance facing Seminary Hall). We are consistently updating due dates and you will be notified with new due dates from the lending library when available. Feel free to email us to request a renewal if we have not yet processed a renewal for your item. Overdue notifications from our ILL system were disabled on 3/23/2020.

I have an ILL item request that I have not yet picked up. What are my options?
Unfortunately we are not checking out any items at this time and the libraries are closed as of 5:00 pm March 25, 2020. ILL items that have not yet been picked up will remain on premises. As the library will not be re-opening prior to the end of the Spring semester, pending items will be returned to the lending library at a later date.

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.
