Interlibrary Loan

ILL Online Form

Oakwood University students, faculty, and staff may request books and articles from other libraries. Before placing an interlibrary loan book  request, please search the library catalog and WorldCat to verify that the Eva B Dykes Library does not already own the item you need.  For journal articles, please search Journals A-Z before placing a request.

To request an item, complete the online form or contact Rebecca Brothers via email or at 256.726.7253. The more information you can provide about the book or article (title, author, year published, ISBN, etc.), the better we'll be able to find what you need.

Every effort is made to provide this service at no cost to you. However, there is a $10.00 charge for RUSH (within 24 hrs.) requests. Items arrive via fax or mail/courier service and may take up to 10 days.

Once you have been notified of their arrival, you can pick up interlibrary loans at the Circulation Desk. Return books to the Circulation Desk on or before the due date. Book loans may be renewed at the discretion of the lending library. Articles are yours to keep.

Where to Go for Help

The Career Services office is there to help you format cover letters, practice interviews, formulate your job search, explore your career aptitude, and much more. You can reach their office at careerservices@oakwood.edu or (256) 726-7134.
