The Interlibrary Loan service allows Auraria campus students, faculty, and staff to request to borrow books, articles and other materials not owned, or not available, at Auraria Library. The Library taps a nation-wide network to borrow needed items. In most cases, articles and book chapters are delivered electronically to your ILL account. Physical items (print books, DVDs, etc.) will be delivered to Auraria Library’s Ask Us desk for pick up.
