Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... Requesting a Book That Is Checked Out or on Hold

If a book is checked out or on hold, you can request it from the ASU Library Collection (recall) or request it from another library.  Before you can check on availability and place the request, you must sign in by clicking on the SIGN IN which will take you to the ASURITE ID sign in process. 

Once logged in, you see the following options;


Request ASU Copy - This is a recall and can take about 2 weeks for the book to be returned for you to check out.

Request external copy - This takes usually 3-5 business days for the book to arrive from another library.

Request chapter scan -  If you only need a chapter rather than the whole book, ask for just the chapter you need. Those usually arrive in less than 72 hours (except weekends & holidays) and may even arrive faster than that.

You will be notified by email when the book is ready for you to pick up or to download the chapter.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... How to Submit a Request Directly From a Database

When you are in a library database, such as ABI/Inofrm, you'll be using the yellow "Get It @ ASU" button to determine if the ASU Library has the item online.

Get It @ ASU Results

Get It @ ASU results page with link to interlibrary loan request


When Get It @ ASU indicates that the article is not online, you may use the link to request the item via the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery service.  When you click on the "Request through Interlibrary Loan" link you'll be taken to the ILL Logon screen and once you log in, the journal article request form will be automatically filled in by the system.   All you have to do is check the form for accuracy and hit the submit button.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... How to Submit a Request Manually

You may also submit a request manually.

  • Log in to your ILL account
  • In the left column under "New Request", select the appropriate type of form for your request (ex."Article" for a journal article, "Book" for borrowing a whole book", "Book Chapter" when you just want a section of the book, etc.)
    Note that textbooks cannot be requested through interlibrary loan since loan periods are too limited for a semester course and because most libraries will not lend them out.
  • When the form appears, fill it in with as much information as you have, then click submit.

Including the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) on a journal article request will result in a faster retrieval of the item.  You can usually find the ISSN for a journal by searching Google with the name of the journal and ISSN.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... Viewing a Requested Article

After you submit a request, your account will show the request as "Outstanding" and give the status. Once the request is received, your account will have the request in the "Electronically Received Articles" section.  You will also be sent an email indicating that the item is now available.  Items stay in your account for 60 days and you may view online, print or download during that time.  After 60 days, the article is removed and the only way to get the article back is to submit another request for it.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
