At the library responds to this unique situation,
Until further notice, interlibrary loan service will be limited to materials that can be delivered electronically, such as articles.
For book requests, please determine the chapter or page range (25 pp. maximum) needed and complete the ILL book chapter request form.
Please be aware that inter-library loan service is disrupted nationwide and is likely to be slower during this time.
Students who are working on senior seminar projects or other substantial research should contact a librarian for assistance with ILL or with alternate resources.
Interlibrary loan books should be returned in the book drop outside the front doors of the library. Emails received about overdue materials are automated and can not be changed; Late fines will not be charged.
If you have questions or need to contact us about returning books, please text 251-267-8877.

ILLiad Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL)
Interlibrary Loan service is available to currently registered, full-time students in all programs. The service is also available to currently employed full-time Spring Hill College faculty and staff. Lending of books and copying of articles is a privilege granted by the lending library to facilitate research. When you borrow material from another library, you accept responsibility for the careful use and prompt return of that library's materials.
What are the main features of ILLiad?
ILLiad sends an e-mail notification as soon as the requested material arrives. The notification will include information about how to retrieve your article:
