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
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.
Requests may be made by completing the online Interlibrary Loan
Request form; by fax (270-384-4188), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org); or by phone
(800-264-6483, ask for the library; after 4 p.m. CT, select "1").
Kim Hamlett is the ILL contact (270-384-8253).
If the interlibrary loan book has not been return by the end of
the semester, your account will be billed $55 plus the fees from

Information Needed When
Publication Date, Edition, or Volume:
Most requests are filled within seven to 10 days, but they may
take as long as three weeks. Therefore, plan research accordingly.
The preferred method for notifying patrons when materials arrive is
e-mail, so include an e-mail address in all requests.
Off-Campus patrons may request interlibrary loans through the
same channels. Items will arrive in the ILL office and then be
processed before being mailed directly to the student's home
address. A return label and postage sufficient to return books to
Kim Hamlett will be enclosed. Because items must be processed after
arrival and then mailed, allow an additional five to seven days
when planning your research.
Articles received through interlibrary loan are generally
supplied free of charge and become the property of the borrowing
patron. If an item (either book or article) has a charge associated
with it, the patron will be notified for approval before the item
