ILL offers new online feature
Have you ever thought that a book you requested through ILL would make a good addition to our library collection? Now USC faculty who ask to borrow a book or other item from another institution through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) have the option to request that the item be purchased and added to the Libraries' collection. Find out how easy it is to request a purchase.
Are you getting the most out of
All faculty members have access to the library through "My Account". "My Account" allows you to:
1) view and renew checked out materials
2) save "preferred searches" in the catalog and receive alerts when new materials are added that match your search
3) keep a record of the materials you have borrowed (optional).
You can do all of this without coming into the library! "My Account" is linked on the library's homepage and within the library's Catalog. Click here for help topics on using "My Account."
