Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery (IDD): Requesting Textbooks

A Guide to all IDD Services

Can I order textbooks through ILL?

Course-required textbooks are not available through interlibrary loan as they are not often owned by libraries.  If a textbook is owned by another library, they often have very short loan period with no renewals or do not circulate at all through interlibrary loan. Therefore, textbook requests will be canceled. 

If a required textbook is not available, please contact your instructor or USC Bookstore.
