If you need an item (book or article) that Carleton does not have, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan using your ILLiad account.

If you’ve found an item through one of our databases, click the “Find It” button to see if it’s available at Carleton or St. Olaf. If it is not found in Catalyst, please click the “Interlibrary Loan Request” link. You’ll be asked to log in and the details of that item will be automatically filled in for you. Click “Submit Request” at the bottom of the page.

  • Articles – Many of our databases will point to articles on your topic, even if Carleton and St. Olaf don’t subscribe to the journal.
  • Books – You can use WorldCat to locate books that are not at Carleton or St. Olaf.  Click “Request Item through Interlibrary Loan” to request the book. If you do not see the book you want in WorldCat, you can manually enter a book request form in your ILLiad account.
  • Dissertations – Many dissertations are available through ProQuest Dissertations and Theses. You can request other dissertations through ILLiad.
