Obtaining Items

If you're looking for an item that the Stevenson University Library doesn't own, your librarian can help in a couple of ways:


Getting Items Through Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the best option for items that you only need to use once, for a short period of time, or to evaluate for purchasing.  You can place ILL requests yourself by signing into your account with your SU username and password.  If you have trouble placing a request or need someone to check the status, reach out to your librarian.  For more information on ILL, read our FAQ.


Purchasing New Items

In accordance with our collection development policy, the Library also purchases new items to support SU students and courses.  If you have a specific request and already know the title of the item you want, reach out to your librarian or to Christina Hipsley, Collection Development and Electronic Resources Librarian.

If you have need an item or resource for a course but haven't identified a specific one yet, reach out to your librarian and they will work with you on finding a suitable title.
