ILL access is available to currently registered OSU students, emeritus faculty and staff with a valid ONID account. First-time users must register for ILL and Scan & Deliver services using their ONID. For more information about your ONID, please visit OSU Network ID. If you are an institution looking to place a request, see ILL Services for other Libraries and Institutions.
Yes. Registering in ILL with your ONID email and mailing address enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives. If you are unable to access your ONID email, we suggest you connect with the OSU Service Desk.
You may submit your request through your ILL account. When entering your account information, select the Status field which indicates you are either an Ecampus student or a Remote Faculty or Remote Staff. Physical items will be shipped via FedEx to the address registered in your ILL account and should be returned via trackable shipping. Ecampus students: see more info here.
ILL access is only available to currently registered OSU students, emeritus faculty and staff with a valid ONID account. We do not offer Interlibrary Loan and Scan & Deliver services to the public.
We can't guarantee that everything that comes through ILL will be screen reader accessible because not all institutions have the capability of providing smart PDFs. If you need your documents OCR'd (Optical Character Recognition), please leave a note when you submit your request, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone at 541-737-4488 and we will work to see if we can find a solution. We understand that this is not a standard practice amongst ILL departments, and we are advocating to have this standard changed.
Requesting current textbooks through ILL is not a recommended option. It can be difficult to find a library which owns or will lend a specific textbook. We will attempt to borrow these types of materials, but we are usually unsuccessful and it is unlikely that a textbook request will be filled. ILL cannot serve as a substitute source for current course material. (For more information about course reserves, click here.)
Scan & Deliver
Scan & Deliver is a service that provides quick, easy access to OSU Library's physical print collection (including microforms). Library staff will scan and deliver requested journal articles and book chapters electronically to your ONID email.
Scan & Deliver is available to currently registered OSU students, and current faculty and staff with a valid ONID account. For information about your ONID, visit OSU Network ID.
Submit Scan & Deliver requests through your ILL and Scan & Deliver account. To place a request or register for Scan & Deliver service, login here.
We will scan up to 100 pages for a single request. If the request exceeds 100 pages, you will be notified via email if we will ship the journal volume or book to you instead. If you don't want the material shipped to you, please reply to the email notification within 1 business day. You are responsible for returning the item back to the library.
Delivery, Checkout, & Return
This service is only available to faculty. Proxy user applications are available online or at the Circulation Desk. Bring the completed form and your OSU ID to the Circulation Desk of the Valley Library. After the application has been processed, proxy borrowers will need to bring their own OSU ID when they pick up your ILL materials.
ILL material should be returned to one of our OSU Library locations (Valley, Guin, or OSU-Cascades Library). Return all ILL material with the original ILL paper band and any included paperwork.

*Recalled ILL materials are materials in which the lending institution has requested for the immediate return.
If you damage your ILL item, we strongly encourage you to contact us first before providing a replacement copy. We will connect with the lending institution to see if they will accept a replacement copy. If they do not, you will be charged a replacement fee.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One specified condition is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproductions for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. OSU Libraries reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
