Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service provides access to materials from libraries beyond the Yavapai Library Network (YLN). Materials may be requested from other libraries (locally to internationally) via the ERAU Hazy Library, thus greatly expanding the range and scope of materials available to our core borrowers.

Who may use Interlibrary Loan?

This service is available to ERAU Prescott faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.

How do I submit a request?

Please contact Leanne Harworth, Library Resources Associate, by e-mail at prill@erau.edu or by phone at (928) 777-3890 or use an online request form.

Anticipation, it's making me wait. But how long?

Carly Simon was right. However, the average request takes approximately 10 days to three weeks to be completed. Loan periods are determined by the lending library and are typically a minimum of two weeks. Photocopies of magazine and/or journal articles are yours to keep. The ILL staff makes every effort to fill your request; however, there is no guarantee that a request can be filled. We will notify you if we are unable to locate and borrow the requested item(s).

What may I borrow through Interlibrary Loan?

You may borrow books, visual materials such as videos and DVDs, and articles from periodicals and journals through ILL. The lending library decides whether to loan requested materials. Items not typically loaned include reference materials, rare books and special collections, and whole issues of periodicals and journals.

Is there a charge for Interlibrary Loan services?

Currently there is no charge to request and receive materials via ILL. However, the borrower is responsible for the replacement cost(s) of any damaged or lost items.
