Interlibrary Loan (ILL) enables Spalding students, faculty, and staff 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. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer ILL services to alumni or other patrons not affiliated with Spalding
Spalding is also a part of the Metroversity consortium. 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.
Spalding is part of the Kentuckiana Metroversity Consortium. As a Metroversity member, our students and staff have library privileges at all other member institutions. You can visit any of the Metroversity libraries in person and show your Spalding ID, or you can request books and articles from Metroversity libraries via Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
