Library Services During COVID-19

Interlibrary Loan and LINK+ Requests

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

USF community members

ILL requesting is available for electronic materials (e.g. articles and chapters) and physical materials (e.g. print books). ILL item pickup at the library is not available. We will make every reasonable effort to ship ILL materials to home addresses, but some limitations and restrictions apply:

  • It will take longer to receive physical print materials due to shipping time from the lending library, quarantining of the package at Gleeson Library, and shipping time from Gleeson Library to your home address.
  • A recipient’s signature will be required on all shipped ILL materials.
  • Fewer libraries have the capacity and ability to lend physical materials; cancellations are expected.
  • We are unable to ship ILL materials to USF community members with international addresses.

For the foreseeable future, Gleeson Library will continue to cover costs up to $15 per request for currently enrolled USF students and $35 per request for full time and part time faculty. Please submit all ILL requests using the online ILL request form, ILLiad.

Participating ILL institutions

We are only able to process lending requests for electronic materials at this time. We are not lending physical materials.


Due to the majority of LINK+ libraries experiencing closures, as well as limited on-site staffing at Gleeson Library, all LINK+ requesting has been suspended until further notice.
