To request the loan of a book not available at a SLU or Mobius library, complete the electronic request form. Occasionally, there will be a fee (up to $35) for borrowing a book. If a fee is required, your acceptance to pay the fee is needed before we can order this item.


You may obtain copies of articles from journals not available at Pius Library by filling out the article request form available through ILLiad. Requested articles must be from journals not currently available at Pius Library, or not available electronically through Pius Library's electronic journals or accessible databases.

Book Chapters

You may obtain copies of chapter from books not available at Pius Library. If multiple chapters are needed, request the book. Copyright prevents us from processing multiple chapter requests. To request a chapter, fill out the book chapter form available through ILLiad.

Dissertations and Theses

Many colleges and universities within the US and Canada have made digitized copies of their dissertations and theses available through the database ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Full Text.

Some universities loan their dissertations if they have a second copy. The format may be hardcopy, microfilm, or microfiche. There may be a loan fee up to $35. If a fee is required, your acceptance to pay the fee is needed before we can order this item.

Arrival of Materials

You generally should expect most photocopies to arrive here within three business days (Monday-Friday). Books should arrive within 14 business days.


Our preferred method is to send an email message to your email account notifying you of the arrival of your requested item, cancellation of your request, or the need of more information before we can order your item.
