Interlibrary Loan Request Form

 Salem College Library System


Use the interlibrary loan form at the bottom of this page to order items needed for research that are not available from Salem.  Please refer to the "FAQ" answers for more information.

Before submitting your request for print or audio-visual materials:

  1. Search WorldCat Local. If the item is checked out or is not owned by Salem Academy & College Libraries, it is eligible for request through ILL.

Before submitting your request for a journal, magazine, or newspaper article: 

  1. Search the title of the publication in WorldCat Local to determine if the article is available from the library’s print or online collections.
  2. Check the publication’s home page on the Internet – many articles are freely available from these sites.
  3. Check Google Scholar  - type in the title of the article within quotation marks. Look for a pdf or html link.

Allow up to 2 weeks for delivery – and at least 3 weeks for audio-visual materials. We will notify you by email when the item arrives, or if we are unable to find a lender. If you have questions, please contact us at{at}

Once your request is delivered to the library and you are contacted (via Salem email accounts), you will have 10 days to pick up the item. If the item is NOT picked up within 10 days, there is a $5.00 per item processing fee for Interlibrary Loan materials, including copies of journal articles and book chapters. This fee will be waived if the item is picked up within 10 days of notification. 

 Please complete the form below as accurately and completely as possible.
