Interlibrary Loan Requests

If you are a member of the Millsaps Community and cannot locate a book or article in the library, you may request the item through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). 

Interlibrary Loan is available only to Millsaps College faculty, students, and staff.

ILL Changes Due to COVID-19:

  • Physical items may not be available for ILL fulfillment at times. Many lending libraries have modified hours, new ILL policies to ensure safety, and/or may be closed.
  • Physical items will be restricted to 3-5 per person at a time when they are available to lend.
  • Expect longer processing times and plan ahead.
  • Upon receipt of physical items from other libraries, items will be quarantined before lending.
