· Patrons must determine if the LRC has the material before submitting requests by searching the Library Catalog or by using the Worldcat A-Z list, used to find locally held journals.
If you have any questions about how to use the library catalog or A-Z service, please don't hestitate to ask our Reference staff or call at ext. 4712.
Interlibrary Loan is a fast, usually free, service that allows members of the AAMU Community to request books, articles and other library resources not owned by AAMU libraries.
The Library uses an online system called ILLiad to manage interlibrary loan requests. ILLiad allows library users to self-manage their requests, including submissions, cancellations and renewals. Additionally, ILLiad provides for the electronic delivery of article requests.
First-time users will need to register for access to the system. Click here to create an account.

If you have forgotten your password, click on CREATE AN ACCOUNT and then "Forgot password".

THE LRC DOES NOT ACCEPT REQUESTS FOR TEXTBOOKS!
While we normally are able to retrieve the material for you at no cost, there are times that requests may only be available from libraries that charge for copies and materials loans. We will contact you BEFORE ordering for your approval of any charges.
These charges may range from $1.00 to $30.00 per copy or book.
The LRC does NOT pay for the charges incurred for Faculty, Staff or Students. Invoices must be paid before materials are released.
Required class materials-WE DO NOT ORDER TEXT BOOKS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Some requests may not be filled due to high demand, copyright restrictions, inability to locate or rarity of item.
