Request an item through ILL
What are current ILL deadlines?

We are currently in summer intersessions. Please check back for Fall 2018 deadlines.

What is ILL?

Through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service, you can have access to books and articles that are not available at Proctor Library. Once you place a request, the ILL technician will attempt to borrow the item from other libraries and/or arrange for the material to be photocopied. ILL makes most of the holdings of libraries within the United States available to Flagler College students, staff and faculty.

Who may use ILL?

ILL may only be used by students, faculty and staff of Flagler College (both the St. Augustine and Tallahassee campuses).

How do I know if I need to order an ILL?

If you would like help determining whether or not Proctor Library holds the item(s) you need, always feel free to check with a Reference Librarian for assistance. If you are not in the building, you may call 819-6331 or e-mail the library and a reference librarian will contact you.

**Please note that audio and visual materials cannot be borrowed through ILL.

How much does it cost to order an ILL?

There is no fee for ordering an ILL. Please be aware, however, that each ILL request costs the Library time in processing and searching, postage, and lending fees. Please use the privilege wisely and only for materials you actually intend to use.

Can I borrow textbooks through ILL?

We cannot accept requests for textbooks used for Flagler College classes. Interlibrary Loan cannot be a substitute for buying textbooks or other required course materials. Loan periods for borrowed materials are rarely longer than 4 to 6 weeks. Keeping a book longer than the loan period is not a solution. You may receive a fine from the loaning library greater than the original cost of the book. Purchasing textbooks, while sometimes expensive, is part of the cost of higher education. If you are concerned about the cost of your textbooks, please discuss this with your professor.

Responsibility for lost or overdue ILL books

Please be aware that by checking out an Interlibrary Loan item you are taking responsibility for any fines and fees that may accompany a late return or lost item. Overdue Interlibrary Loan items may accrue fines. If you fail to return an Interlibrary Loan item you will be responsible for replacement costs and processing fees. If you ever anticipate being unable to meet a due date, please contact us at (904)819-6206 or mdintino@flagler.edu in advance of the due date. Interlibrary Loan items are considered higher-priority items, as they are not owned by our Library and their timely return is vital to the success of the ILL operation. Please keep aware of the due dates of your items at all times, and of the penalties for late and lost items.
