Our Services During Re-opening Phase 2

ILL is accepting requests for print and electronic journal articles and book chapters. If we hold the material in print in LSU Library, we will provide a scan in about 2 business days. If we do not hold the material we will request it from another library, and it may take longer to arrive.

ILL is accepting requests for whole books and other physical items from faculty, staff, and graduate students. Due to closures at other libraries, items will take longer than usual to arrive. Expect your material in about 1-3 weeks.

Pickup physical materials in the Main Library lobby on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.. Wait for a pickup notification before coming to library. In accordance with LSU Phase 2 guidelines, masks and 6 feet of social distancing are required.

Return ILL materials that are past their due date to the overnight dropbox to the right of the entrance to the Main Library. If you are unable to come to campus, return the material via the US Postal Service by Certified or Priority Mail to the following address: LSU Libraries, Interlibrary Loan Rm. 241B, LSU Library, 58 Thomas Boyd Lot, Baton Rouge, LA 70803.
