NOTE: If you currently have an open Interlibrary Loan request, please CHECK YOUR SNHU EMAIL every day in case we need to contact you about your request. Due to current reduced staffing, we recommend allowing the maximum time possible for processing your ILL requests.


No. Interlibrary loan materials cannot be used as required or optional course readings, as the service is intended to provide individual students, staff, and faculty access to research material not available through Shapiro Library. It is a violation of copyright law to use an article, book, or book chapter obtained from interlibrary loan a replacement for course texts.

If you would like to place an item on reserve that is owned by neither you nor the Shapiro Library, please contact your school’s library liaison to request a purchase.  Please note that it can take several weeks to complete book/media orders, so please plan accordingly.

NOTE: Please check your SNHU email at least daily until you receive your copy request or your loan request is returned. We may need to contact you for clarification or updates about your request.
