Libraries share books and articles from their collections via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Interlibrary Loan is a free service for current Buffalo State students, faculty, and staff. Please use the link to the right to create an ILLiad account; then use Interlibrary Loan to get the scholarly resources your research requires!
The Interlibrary Loan Process:
Interlibrary Loan materials can be picked up at the Circulation Desk. Failure to pick up Interlibrary Loan requests may result in a $10 fine on your library account.
Since books and media may be unavailable, non-circulating, or shipped from afar, requests could take anywhere from 3-15 business days to fulfill. Articles usually take between 1-4 business days because they can be scanned and sent electronically or faxed. It is unlikely that we will be able to obtain textbooks, CD's, DVD's, or Blu-Ray materials.
Look for the "Request from another SUNY library" link under the sub-heading "How to Get It" when searching for a book using the library's ALLsearch discovery tool.
