If the book is available in one of the MSMU Libraries, it can be sent to either Chalon or Doheny libraries via Intercampus Mail.
In the catalog record for your desired item, select Request and enter your login information. Select the campus where you would like to pick up your item.
Please allow at least 2 days for delivery.
LINK+ Interlibrary Loan Service
LINK+ is a free service which allows current MSMU students, faculty and staff to borrow books from other LINK+ participating academic and public libraries in California and Nevada. LINK+ is a combined catalog of materials belonging to the participating libraries.
LINK+ has faster delivery than traditional Interlibrary Loan. Books are delivered to both Chalon and Doheny campus libraries by courier service. MSMU Libraries’ users may only borrow books. Materials such as media and journals are searchable, but not available for borrowing.
All LINK+ users must have a current library card, free of fines, to use the service.
The loan period is 21 days with one renewal. You may renew your books and monitor the status of your requests by clicking “My Library Account” on the MSMU Libraries’ home page. Log in using your name and library bar code to see if materials have been shipped or received.
Overdue LINK+ materials are charged at a rate of $1/day and $115 for lost or damaged materials.
Traditional Interlibrary Loan
Traditional Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is used for books not available from one of our partner libraries in LINK+. This service must be performed by the ILL Librarian, who will request your book through OCLC Resource Sharing.
If you need a book that is not available from a LINK+ library, please fill out and submit the ILL Materials Request Form to request traditional ILL.
(If there is a particular article that you need from a periodical that we do not own you can use this Document Delivery Request Form.)
Please allow at least two weeks for delivery of ILL materials. Books ordered via traditional ILL are shipped by the USPS using the media mail rate. Please plan for shipping time when doing your research.
