*During the summer, turnaround times may be longer due to many lending libraries being closed or short-staffed*

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) enables Spalding students and faculty to utilize the collective resources of libraries worldwide for their research. Through mutual sharing agreements with other academic libraries, we are able to provide access to a vast array of materials that would be too costly for any single library to own. 

Spalding is also a part of the Metroversity ‚Äčconsortium. If another university library in Louisville has the book or article you need, you may be able to get the material more quickly by visiting the library in person.
