As a Distance Education Student registered at MSUM, you are able to request MSUM-owned materials be mailed to you at your home.
You are required to mail them back to MSUM at your expense or return them in person. For some patrons, there is the option to return them to a participating Minnstate library, and have them returned via the MII Shuttle. Please contact ILL for more information about this option.
We will also copy articles from journals that MSUM owns and send a PDF to your email.
Please use the Interlibrary Loan form to request items to be delivered to you. Be sure to include a Comment on each request, identifying yourself as a Distance Ed student.
Interlibrary Loan Services are also available to you as a Distance Education student.
You may request both books and articles to be delivered to you.
When you make an ILL request as a Distance Ed student, please be sure to include a *Note on each ILL request identifying yourself as a Distance Ed student.
You do not need to include your actual address on each request as long as it is current in your library record. You can verify your home address by checking under Profile when logged into your library account.
