Interlibrary Loan provides articles from our collection and books, articles, and other materials not available from our library. The service is available to Augusta University, Summerville Campus faculty, staff, and students. Learn more about these services with Library Tutorials »
Procedures for Using Interlibrary Loan Service:
Copyright guidelines allow the Reese Library to borrow up to 6 articles from the same journal volume. The Library is bound by any restrictions on borrowing and/or use imposed by the lending library.
The time allowed by the lending library is indicated on a slip attached to the front
of the book. The loan period varies; it is commonly two weeks from the date of receipt.
An extension of time should be requested only in extenuating circumstances, and should
be directed to the Interlibrary Loan Office.
Dissertations are usually not available for loan and must be purchased by the requester from University Microfilms. Order information can be obtained from Dissertation Abstracts.
Reese Library does not charge to use the Interlibrary Loan Service. However, charges may occur if the lending library charges for their services.
If a request will accrue any charges, the Interlibrary Loan Processor will email the patron before final processing. All charges must be paid before receiving materials.
Payment for Interlibrary Loan requests may be made by IDR or online through Touchnet or POUNCE. Invoices will be sent monthly, see other fee schedule. All requests are now processed same-day, if possible.
Intercampus loan allows Augusta University students, faculty, and staff to request items from another Augusta University campus library (Reese) and have them delivered to their own Augusta University campus library (Reese) for pickup.
Delivery is generally 24-48 hours. You are notified by email when the item you have requested arrives.
