Combined Arms Research Library
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service which helps CGSC students, faculty, and staff obtain materials that are unavailable in the Combined Arms Research Library.
How do I make a request?
If you do not possess a CAC card stop by the Reference Desk for an Interlibrary Loan request form or submit an online request through WorldCat for Books and other materials, excluding Journal Articles.
Any problems, special needs, etc. regarding ILL please call or stop by the ILL office which is located on the 1st floor of the library, and can be reached at (913) 758-3017, Mon.-Fri.,9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no charge for this service.
We do not accept requests for items that are available from the CARL collections or in the CARLâ€™s full-text e-journal collection.
Why can't I request textbooks?
Due to limited availability, short lending periods and lack of renewals offered, and costs associated for the CARL, requests for textbooks are unable to be filled. If you are unsure if your item qualifies as a textbook, please consult the Interlibrary Loan staff. Click here for alternative resources for obtaining a textbook.
A request may take between 1 to 4 weeks, depending upon location and availability.
You may check the status of your request at anytime by calling the ILL department at 758-3017.
You will be notified by e-mail when the item has been received.
You may submit up to 15 ILL request per month. Please prioritize them in order of importance.
It is up to the lending library as to when material is due. Material is generally loaned for 4 weeks. Some materials may be restricted to "library use only." Photocopies are yours to keep.
Renewals may be requested and are subject to approval by the lending library. If the label on your book states "NO RENEWALS," you cannot renew the item. You may request renewals by stopping by ILL office located on the 1st floor of the library or by phone at 758-3017, Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The email address is email@example.com
Please return all ILL material to a staff member at the circulation desk where you checked them out. Please do not put ILLs in a book return bin. Photocopies are yours to keep and donâ€™t have to be returned.
Ask at your home library, which is any local public, corporate, or academic library where you have borrowing privileges.
Every effort should be made to return ILL materials on time. Overdue items jeopardize CARLâ€™s ability to borrow items from other libraries. In addition, an individual's library privileges may be suspended until the overdue material is returned.
