Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided for current Gannon University students, faculty, and staff by which materials, not owned by the library, are obtained from other libraries. The library covers the costs of select item requests. ILLiad is the system that manages your ILL requests. Using ILLiad you can track the status of your requests and view your ILL borrowing history.
To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must be identified as a member of the Gannon Community in the library's ILLiad system. To do this, you fill out a registration form.
Registration has three purposes:
Publisher sites vary. When completing ILL request forms for articles found doing a Internet search, be sure to identify your journal title correctly:
It can be easy to confuse publisher names with journal titles
Publisher names/tag lines are often found at the top of the website. Followed by the publication name.
Does the publisher provide the full text?
Publisher pages change often and determining if full text is available may hard to determine. Whether you follow a link from a library resource search or searching on the Internet, scan the site for either a PDF icon or "full text" before submitting a request.
Where you search will make a difference.
Searching with a Gannon workstation or using the Gannon wireless network may provide access to some publisher full text sites due to individual electronic title subscriptions.
If you have a question about what can be accessed feel free to contact a librarian or search for your article by pasting full article title in our One Search on our home page.
