Information on Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan

Document Services and Interlibrary Loan

Can't find what you need at our library? 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is an agreement among libraries to share library resources needed for research. WKU faculty, staff, and students may use ILL as a supplement to the WKU Libraries.  Books, journal articles, dissertations, government documents, microfilm materials, and other items may be borrowed via ILL. We are located on the fourth floor Raymond Cravens Library (Commons at Cravens). WKU Library offers Document Delivery services for faculty, staff, and students who request library books, other media, and copies of articles from journals which are held in the University libraries.

Photocopying and Scanning

WKU Libraries has a variety of options for copying or scanning. Copiers will make enlargements and reductions from 50% to 200%. Both letter and legal size paper is available. Need to use a scanner? Use our walk-up KIC (Knowledge Imaging Center) scanner in the Visual & Performing Arts Library on the 2nd floor of Cravens Library. The scanner can handle books, magazines, journals, newspapers, photos, or other material from postage stamp size up to 17 x 24 inches. With a choice of resolutions up to 600 dots/inch, the scanner can handle intricate artwork.
