Library Interlibrary Loan & Faculty Delivery
Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)
If the HPU Libraries do not own an item needed for your research, you may request the item from another library through Interlibrary Loan. This service is available to HPU faculty, staff, and students.
Articles can be delivered electronically to the patron in about 1-3 days. Books take a bit longer, between 1 and 3 weeks. Please keep in mind when requesting materials that these are the average turnaround times. Instructional or specialty video and audio materials, dissertations, music scores, and most other types of items can be requested.
You can make ILL requests and check their status by logging into your ILLiad account:

Document Delivery (Faculty only)
Document Delivery provides for the retrieval and delivery of HPU library materials and ILL materials to the campus address designated in your ILLiad account. This service is reserved for HPU faculty.
Items available for delivery:
- Books, videos, CDs, musical scores, maps, DVDs, or other items held at one of the HPU Library locations.
- Individual journal articles from a bound or current periodical or microfiche. (Journals are generally non-circulating items, so we cannot send entire journals.) Scanned articles will be delivered electronically to your ILLiad account. You can check the status of an item by logging in to ILLiad.
Requested materials will be delivered Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the summer sessions.
