Interlibrary Loan: The Basics

Library Services Chat


Are you looking for a specific resource that is not owned by the William C. Jason Library, missing from the shelf, or already checked out? Let us find it for you.  Interlibrary loan allows you to borrow items from other libraries at no cost to you.  Simply build an account and complete a request through Tipasa. 

To request library materials,

1. Open Tipasa

2. Log in using your D#.  When logging in for the first time, users will need to establish an account.

3. Initiate a new request according to the format type - article/chapter or Book.

4. Submit it and the library staff will do the rest. 


The average time for book request(s) ranges between 5-to-10 days and 2-to-4 days for articles. However, completion time can vary greatly based on the availability of the material.

In the interest of maintaining good working relationships with lending institutions, due dates must be honored. All borrowed items should be returned to the Circulation/Reserves desk.

If a renewal is necessary, you may submit a request through your Tipasa account or contact the Circulation desk at (302) 857-6191. Please initiate your request as soon as you know you will need the item past the due date.  Please be mindful that libraries may deny the renewal request.
