Montana State University-Northern Library


Interlibrary Loan Service

  • Montana State University-Northern Library's Interlibrary loan (ILLiad) service serves MSU-Northern students, faculty, administration and staff members. All others should make requests through the Havre-Hill County Public Library or another local library.
  • Use the Interlibrary Loan Service after having made a search of the materials (books, journal articles, government publications) owned by the Vande Bogart Library. This service is meant to supplement our resources, not replace them.
  • The request forms must be filled in completely. If you have a question about the information required, please ask a staff member.
  • Most interlibrary loan requests take between one week to one month to fill. The average is two weeks. Please keep this in mind when making your request.
  • Requested books may be picked up at the Circulation Desk.  Most articles will be posted to a server, instructions to access the document will be e-mailed to you.
  • Because of the passage of HB193, the MSU-Northern Library will absorb the charges connected with your Interlibrary Loan request. We reserve the right to limit requests for books and/or journal articles if it becomes necessary to do so.
  • Failure to return material by the due date will jeopardize future ILL borrowing privileges. ILL privileges may be suspended for a semester or for the school year. Materials not returned will be billed to you at the rate set by the lending libraries.
  • Fines will be charged for overdue materials.
  • Ordered requests cannot be canceled.
  • Unclaimed ILL books will be held for 7 days after notification by telephone or mail before being returned to the lending library.  Borrowing privileges may also be suspended for repeated unclaimed requests.
  • Requests will not be accepted for duplicate materials.
