Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Dupré Library's Interlibrary Loan service provides students and faculty with access to research articles and books not already available through the library's databases, journal subscriptions, and catalog. If Dupré Library does not own a book or journal article that you need, we'll order it for you from another institution through Interlibrary Loan.

How do I use Interlibrary Loan?

  • To use Interlibrary Loan, you'll need to register for an account, which is seperate from your regular library account. Once your account has been verified, you can begin ordering materials through Interlibrary Loan.
  • You'll need your Cajun Card number to complete your registration for Interlibrary Loan. Your Cajun Card number is exactly the same as your ULID (the number you use to log in to Moodle), except it starts with the number 3, rather than the letter C. So, for example, if your ULID is C00123456, your Cajun Card number is 300123456.  
  • Interlibrary Loan requests are $2 per article and must be paid in Cajun Cash. You can deposit funds onto your Cajun Card online through ULink.
