Interlibrary Loan @ HSL

Interlibrary Loan is a free service that obtains materials not available in the Temple University Libraries for eligible Temple University Health Sciences faculty, students, and staff through a system called ILLiad.

Types of Materials That You Can Request

  • Books 
  • Book chapters
  • Conference proceedings (If available in published format)
  • Journal articles
  • Theses and dissertations  (If available for loan. Often these are available only in microform format)
Placing Interlibrary Loan Requests
Before submitting a request in ILLiad, please be sure to double check our holdings via the Library Search page to see if your item is already in the collection.
If you don't find them, then login to one of the ILLiad accounts to make your request:

ILLiad for Krausz Podiatry Library Patrons

NOTE: First time ILLIAD users will be prompted to fill out a one-time registration page.

Another method of obtaining books not owned by Temple University is through a service called E-ZBorrow. This service enables you to place requests directly. The books arrive at Paley Library usually within 4 working days, (you will receive an email notification of this), and are then sent, (usually within an additional 2 days) to the Ginsburg Health Sciences Library for you to pick up.
