Interlibrary Loan

Library staff can order articles and books from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  The service is available to Saint Anthony College of Nursing students, faculty, and staff.  Please ask a librarian for an ILL form or use the "Request an Interlibrary Loan Item" link below to submit an ILL request.  Items can usually be obtained at no cost; however, if a free source is not available the patron must pay any fees charged by the lending institution.
