Electronic Resource & Database Access

There will be no off-campus access to Library electronic resources and databases this Friday, November 28 from 6-10pm. Library buildings are also closed for the Thanksgiving holiday during that time.

Receiving ILL Materials

You will be notified via email when your ILL materials are ready to pick up.

In most cases, you will check out your ILL materials at the Davidson Library Circulation Desk.  Materials can only be picked up by the person who made the original request (faculty and their proxy borrowers may pick up one another’s requests). If you cannot pick up your ILL materials in person, please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department as soon as possible. Contact Us

Items designated “Library Use Only” must be used in the Special Collections Department of Davidson Library.  Please note that Special Collections has limited resources for viewing non-book materials.  Please call the department at (805) 893-3062 to make arrangements for viewing. Consult the Special Collection hours to see when the department is open.

If you requested a journal article, you will be sent a link to an electronic copy of the article, with instructions for retrieving it. If a paper copy is sent by the supplying library, it will be held at the Davidson Library Circulation Desk for you to pick up. You will receive an email notification of its arrival.

My ILL Requests

You can view your current ILL requests through My ILL Requests.  When an item first arrives and is being processed in the ILL Office, its status changes to “Received” in My ILL Requests, but it is not available until you receive email notification of its arrival.
