Never pay
for articles!
If you need materials not immediately available through the Library Catalog, Illinois Catalog (I-Share), or Journal Search, you may request them through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

The Interlibrary Loan department borrows items for Olivet patrons, and lends Benner Library materials to patrons from other institutions. This service allows us to access journal articles, books, and media from thousands of other libraries throughout the world, including hundreds in Illinois. ILL is available only to current Olivet students, faculty and staff.
