Do you need a book or journal article for your research that STL Law Library doesn't own? We can get it for you from another library. Just find the item in our catalog (book, article, database). If we don't own it, please use the STL Law Library Interlibrary Loan Request Form to submit request to us. Provide as much bibliographic/citation information as possible.

Interlibrary loan is provided to facilitate the academic research of STL students, faculty, and staff. In addition, as a member library, we offer interlibrary loan service to other CALIS members.
Materials can take from a few hours to a few days to arrive from the time they are requested depending on the lending library. Note that some requests may take longer to fill depending on the location, nature and/or availability of the requested item.
Most ILL articles are delivered electronically in PDF format. You will be notified via e-mail when requested documents are available for your use.
Overdue interlibrary loan books incur fines of RMB0.30 per day late to a maximum of RMB 10.00 per item.
You may request no more than 10 items per week.
For articles, the STL Law Library offers non-returnable service. And the cost of this service will be paid by STL.
