Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Kansas Wesleyan Memorial Library users may request books, audio-visual materials, and photocopied articles from other libraries through the InterLibrary loan process. There are several methods available for making requests.

From our databases, when no "full-text" or "find a copy" link is available, use the ILL button or "request a copy" and fill out the form. It will be sent to the library for processing.

If you need a book or article that is not available through our catalog or listed in our databases, use this form to make a request: ILL Request Form.

We are not able to process student requests for current textbooks or required reading materials for courses. Please see a librarian about placing this material on reserve.

The Kansas Library Catalog is an online catalog containing books, magazines/journals articles, videos, audiocassettes, microforms available from public, school and academic libraries from across Kansas. These items may be borrowed through the interlibrary loan procedure.

Through the OCLC/WorldCat system it is possible to borrow  books, magazines/journals articles, videos, audiocassettes, microforms from across the United States.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for an interlibrary loan item. We will notify you when it arrives. We reserve the right to charge a fine $1/day for an overdue interlibrary loan item.  Users are responsible for replacement costs of any lost/damaged item.

• For more information or questions please contact Kate Wise, Associate Librarian, at 785-833-4397 or by email at

Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyright material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of ‘fair use,’ that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
