The Interlibrary Loan service allows the Library to borrow books or retrieve photocopies of articles from other libraries. If DBU does not own the book or periodical you need, you may place an ILL request.  Textbooks may not be requested through ILL.

ILL REQUEST FORMS

ONLY current DBU students, faculty, and staff may place ILL requests.

Book Request

REQUEST PROCEDURE

  • Make sure DBU does not already have the item needed. Check the Online Catalog.
  • Start early! ILL requests may take up to two weeks to fulfill.
  • Please prioritize multiple requests and allow extra time for processing.
  • Only one item per request form. Please use separate forms for each request.
  • In a hurry? Check other libraries in the DFW area, and use your TexShare card to borrow from participating institutions.
    • Apply for your free TexShare card at the circulation desk or online.
  • Some institutions assess fees for ILL services. Please indicate the amount (if any) you are willing to pay in fees on the request form.
  • Fill out the appropriate form completely. Items with * are required. Be specific.
  • Return items to DBU. Please note due dates. Overdue fees of $1 per item per day are assessed.

PICK-UP PROCEDURE

  • You will be notified by email and/or phone when your request has arrived.
  • Pick up items at the circulation desk – you must show your current DBU ID.
  • If a fee is charged by the lender, you must pay it at the time of pick-up.
  • Items not picked up will be returned to the lending library.
  • Borrowed items will have a paper sleeve attached. Please do not remove this.

DISTANCE EDUCATION STUDENTS

  • Off-campus students should indicate their distance ed status in the Comments sections of the ILL request form.
  • Books and articles will be mailed to distance learners upon receipt in the ILL office.
  • Books must be returned to DBU's library - NOT the lending library.  Please mail books in time to be received by the due date.

RETURN PROCEDURE

  • Please return items by or before due date, regardless of pick-up date.
  • Items must be returned to the circulation desk. DO NOT USE BOOK DROPS.
  • Distance Learning students must return items to DBU by mail or in person.
  • It is not necessary to return photocopies of articles.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Fines for overdue items: $1.00 per day.
  • You are responsible for paying fees if the book is lost or damaged. The lending library will determine the fee.
  • If the lending library recalls the item, you must return it immediately.

Top

COPYRIGHT

  • Copyright information is included in the ILL request forms.
  • By submitting a request, you are agreeing to abide by the “fair use” restrictions of copyright law.
  • Within any calendar year, for articles published within five years prior to the date of an ILL request, the DBU library can only request five articles from any single journal title. For the sixth request, the library must seek permission from the copyright owner and pay royalties.  Also, within one calendar year, if a patron submits ILL requests for two articles from the same journal issue, royalty fees will apply to the second article.  Fees are set by the copyright owner.
