Filling Patron Requests

  • Policies for Interlibrary Loan
  • Procedure Overview - Flow chart of the ILL process: where to look and how to request.
    1. When a MHLS library receives a request from a patron for material it does not own, library staff first checks the local and regional databases (i.e. Millennium / SEAL). Other catalogs are also available for searching.
      1. Note: If a journal title in not available in Millennium, please also check the electronic journals before sending in a request.
    2. If the material is not in Millennium or SEAL, the library sends a request to the MHLS ILL Department by e-mail to or through paper ALA ILL Forms (print an ILL form in .pdf or in Word so you can type in your entries).
