Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service allowing students, faculty, and staff to borrow books, articles, and other materials from other libraries. If you need a book the Canizaro Library does not own, contact a reference librarian, and we will endeavor to borrow it from another library for you. The Canizaro Library will process up to 10 requests per week for each patron. Many Interlibrary Loan requests are filled within days, but can take from 1-3 weeks to arrive.  Requests may be submitted in person at the main desk, by phone (239-280-2557), or via e-mail to
