Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

The InterLibrary Loan (ILL) department provides students, faculty and staff with materials not contained in the Katie Murrell Library's collection by borrowing from other libraries not only in Kentucky but the entire United States. Access to these materials is through the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) and their online database, FirstSearch. Interlibrary loan is a free service and anyone can request a book. The average loan time for a book is 5 weeks. Our library also obtains copies of articles needed as well. If you have any questions or need help locating a book, stop by the Interlibrary Loan Office. Kim Hamlett is the ILL contact (270-384-8253).
