Interlibrary Loan

Requesting Books, Articles and Other Materials

There are two primary, online methods for requesting library materials:

  • Interlibrary Loan
  • Searching Regional Library Catalogs

INTERLIBRARY LOAN

You may request any type of library materials by going online and using Interlibrary Loan. You will be required to log in using your RegisNET account. Interlibrary Loan allows you to request items, watch the status of those items and to retrieve articles that will be delivered electronically. Your profile in Interlibrary Loan is separate from any other Regis accounts.

SEARCH REGIONAL LIBRARY CATALOGS

You may also request library materials via Prospector, an online tool for searching and requesting items from Regis University or other regional libraries. When you locate an item in Prospector you wish to request, click on the "Request this Item" link. You will need your RegisNET account login to complete the request process.

Search Prospector

NEED AN ARTICLE?

If you are looking for an article, you may want to check our Citation Linker to see if it is available in full-text online. Enter your citation and a window will open with information on where you could retrieve the article.

If no full-text sources are available for an article, you may wish to click on the "Request from Interlibrary Loan" link in the new window to put your request in to Interlibrary Loan.

Regis University Library – Resource Sharing Services  

Prospector  

Prospector is our regional borrowing and lending group and includes major academic and public libraries in Colorado as well as the University of Wyoming.  Use this service to request print books, CDs, DVDs, and more!  To view your Prospector requests (and regular Regis loans), please visit your library account. 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)  

If something is not available locally, use ILL to request items from around the world!  This service can be used to request books, media, articles, and book chapters.   ILL requests are made through ILLiad, the library’s interlibrary loan management system.   

Delivery of Items  

For current students, faculty, and staff within a 10-mile radius of any Regis University campus, physical items can be picked up at your campus of choice.  For the northwest Denver campus, items will be held at the library’s circulation desk for 10 days.   For the DTC and Thornton campuses, items can be picked up at the front desks.   Please allow up to 7 days for delivery to DTC and Thornton campuses. 

For current students, faculty, and staff further than 10 miles from any Regis campus, the library will mail Regis and interlibrary loan items to a home or work address.  The library will pay for shipping to the address and provide you with a tracking number for the return.  Users are responsible for return shipping costs.   Only ILL and Regis items will be mailed. Prospector items must be picked up at a Regis campus location.    

All electronic requests (articles, book chapters, and streaming media) will be delivered electronically to the email provided in your ILL account.  

For help with these services, please contact interlib@regis.edu.  

User Responsibilities

Eligibility for ILL services is dependent upon good standing across all library accounts.   Overdue items or fines/fees for any library services will result in a temporary block on your ILL, Prospector, and local account.  This block can be resolved by returning materials and/or paying any fines and fees.    

Users are responsible for all materials on their account and may be charged the cost of replacement or repair for lost or damaged items. For students, charges will be added to your student account.  For faculty and staff, the library will invoice you the amount charges by the lending library.  Non-payment may result in the loss of library privileges.   Questions regarding replacement or repair costs should be directed to the Access Services Librarian.
