Interlibrary Loan Discontinued at Holy Names

Requesting Books, Articles, & DVDs from other Libraries

You can always request books, articles, and DVDs from other libraries when you're searching our catalog. If the item is not held at Holy Names University, it will show that it is held by other libraries worldwide. Look for the "Request from Libraries Worldwide" button. 

OCLC Discovery Request Item button

If you're off-campus, you will be asked to authenticate yourself as a member of the HNU community. Complete the form by providing your information. 

Once the request has been submitted, books and DVDs can generally take 5-10 days to arrive, and articles can take 1-5 days. We will contact you by email once your item has arrived and is ready to be picked up or to confirm your mailing address. 

WMS request form

You can use the ILL Request Form to submit requests for items you find outside of the library catalog. 

Materials can be returned by mail addressed to HNU Cushing Library, by using the book drop at the campus front gate, or by using the book drop in front of the library building. 

Interlibrary Loan requests are processed Monday through Friday between 9 am and 5 pm.
