Interlibrary Loan Policy


The Medical Library's policy for borrowing items from others libraries for SIU personnel and the borrowers' responsibilites.

Users are responsible for overdue or lost book charges incurred for materials borrowed from another library.

The Library currently supports service charges or fees incurred in obtaining items from other sources, with the following exception:
The cost of requests that exceed copyright guidelines and require payment of a royalty fee to a publisher will be charged back to the requester. Prior approval and fiscal authorization will be obtained before the document is ordered.

We do not loan outside the continental United States.

CDs and DVDs do not circulate with books.

Other Libraries

Interlibrary loan services are also provided to other libraries in the state, region, and country, in accordance with the ILL fee schedule on the Library Service Fees page.
