The San Diego State University (SDSU) Library shares its collection with other libraries via our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Lending Unit. Requests cannot be accepted directly from individual researchers. If you are not an ILL staff person, please contact your local library about your research needs and they will forward your request to us or to the library most appropriate for your research in accordance with interlibrary loan protocol.

SDSU faculty, staff, and students: Interlibrary Loan's borrowing services are described on the Interlibrary Loan Home Page.
