Interlibrary Loan for Articles

If our Library does not have an article you are looking for, we can get it from another Library.  Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service for all currently enrolled CIA students, faculty and staff.

We will email the digital copy (pdf) of the article to you. It may take around 1 week to receive an article.

How to Request an Item thru ILL in Omnivore:

  • Search in Omnivore for a title, author, or topic
  • Click on Title of item
  • Click button Request Item through Interlibrary Loan
  • Enter your name, CIA email and date needed

If you do not find the item in Omnivore, you can use the Online ILL Request forms

Boolean Operators
Use AND or OR to specify multiple words in any field, any order. Use AND NOT to exclude words.
