Welcome to Interlibrary Loan Department of Regent University Library

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a FREE borrowing and loaning book service. ILL obtains books, articles, book chapters, and other research materials for students, faculty and staff. 

 

Distance Students (DE) can request circulating books owned by Regent Library to be shipped to their home.  Additionally, Interlibrary Loan will borrow books that are unavailable in the Regent Collection from other libraries. This service is available for DE students that live within the Continental United States.  Please keep in mind that items borrowed from other libraries are first delivered to Regent Library, before being shipped to your address which will result in a shorter check-out period.  Due to the shorter check-out period, you may want to consider using your local public library ILL department for this service.

 

Did you know...

Regent University Library participates in several reciprocal borrowing agreements that allow Regent students, faculty, and staff in-person borrowing privileges at participating college and university libraries throughout the United States and Canada at no cost.  These programs are easy to use and are particularly useful to those living closer to a participating library - providing more convenient and faster access to materials than delivery via interlibrary loan.

To learn more about these programs including names of participating libraries, borrowing privileges and more, visit our Reciprocal Borrowing guide at http://libguides.regent.edu/reciprocalborrowing/home.

Public patrons are not eligible for Regent University ILL services; however we encourage all public patrons to use their local public libraries for all ILL needs.

 

If you are a Law student you must register with ILL through Regent University Law Library. ACLJ should also use the Law Library ILL department for requesting materials.

 

ILLiad is the resource sharing management software used by Regent University Library to process all ILL requests. The ILLiad system allows patrons to place ILL requests, track requests, check due dates, renew items, and view ILL borrowing history. Every patron is required to fill out a one-time registration form to set up an ILLiad account. Each item must be requested online at Regent University Library’s website through the patron’s ILLiad account. Please DO NOT request textbooks!

How to Submit ILL Requests

To place a request:

  • Login to your ILLiad account.
  • Use the Main Menu--New Request options to select the type of interlibrary loan you would like to request.

         

 

On the request form:

1. Fill in the required information, such as Title and Author.

2. Click "Submit Request" at the bottom of the form to complete your request.

Renew ILL Materials

You may submit a request to renew your ILL materials directly from your Regent Interlibrary loan (ILLiad) account.  Click on the link below to view brief step-by-step instructions on placing renewal requests.

Two key points to keep in mind are:

1.       If you are initiating the renewal request through your ILLiad account, the request must fall within the 7-day window period of the item’s due date.

2.       Your renewal request does not automatically renew the item. Renewals are ONLY granted at the discretion of the lending library.  If a renewal is allowed, the average renewal period is 3 weeks. We will contact you upon our hearing back from the lending library.

You may also request a renewal by emailing ill@regent.edu or by calling Patty Hughson at 757.352.4424 or Carine Mattix at 757.352.4824

Distant Student Services

Books: Distance Students are eligible to request circulating items owned by Regent University Library. Additionally, Interlibrary Loan will borrow books that are unavailable in the Regent Collection from other libraries. This service is available for DE students that live within the Continental United States.  Please keep in mind that items borrowed from other libraries are first delivered to Regent Library, before being shipped to your address which will result in a shorter check-out period.  Due to the shorter check-out period, you may want to consider using your local public library ILL department for this service.


Returns:  You are responsible for return postage on all items that are shipped to you. We recommend that you use a courier with tracking and insurance so that you are not charged for books lost in return shipment.


PDF Copies of Articles or Book Chapters: Just like other students, Distance Students can request PDF copies of articles and book chapters.
