Since the Archives collection is not comprehensive, the time may come when you need to look at material located elsewhere. Books, microfilms, or photocopies may be obtained through interlibrary loans (ILLs). Interlibrary loan request forms are at the Archives reference desk. You may also request ILLs by contacting Archives staff at 217-367-4025 or  

A fee per interlibrary loan may be required to recoup any lending library's fees. Interlibrary loan requests within the state of Illinois are free of charge.
