Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery
The Interlibrary Loan service desk is located in the main corridor on the first floor of the Library.
Interlibrary Loan is used as a way of expanding Library resources to a worldwide level. If you are a PSU patron and you need something that is not owned by our library, you may be able to obtain it from another using this service. Books, dissertations, theses, and photocopies of journal articles are examples of material available on Interlibrary Loan.
Axe Library observes the provisions and restrictions of the Kansas Interlibrary Loan Best Practices guidelines and the National Interlibrary Loan Code (revised 2008) as approved by the American Library Association.
The Axe Library is a member of the Southeast Kansas Library System, one of seven Regional Library Systems in Kansas. We are also one of the many libraries in over 65 Southeast Kansas towns that service the area. Other services through the SEK System include a vast assortment of genealogical materials and services for the blind, elderly & physically handicapped.
The Interlibrary Loan department uses an online system called ILLiad to provide interlibrary loan and document delivery services to PSU patrons. ILLiad imports citations from WorldCat, and article citations from a number of our 120+ online databases.
Odyssey software and OCLC's "Article Exchange" is used to send and receive journal articles. Mail and fax delivery is also possible. Our Odyssey address is: 18.104.22.168/ILL .
