This service is offered to ERAU faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students only. There are no fees involved, unless materials are lost, damaged, or not returned.

Requests can be submitted using the Interlibrary Loan Request form in EagleSearch. To expedite your request, please do the following:

  • Use one form per item requested and fill out the form completely.
  • Do not abbreviate titles.
  • Supply your original source for the citation information on each request.

There is no limit to the number of items you can request at one time. However, we do ask that if you request more than five items at one time, you tell us which are the highest priority using the Notes field.

The Hunt Library adheres to Florida Statute (s 257.261.F.S.0) as it pertains to patron confidentiality and privacy of patron records. Please see the library's Confidentiality Policy for more information.

Items that cannot be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan

It is at the lending library's discretion as to what is lent out to a borrowing library. Items which are not usually lent include:

  • Reference books, rare books and non-circulation books
  • Audiovisual materials, Genealogical, heraldic, or similar materials
  • Whole issues of journals/magazines
  • Materials published in the current year
  • Required Course Textbooks

Time for Expected Delivery of ILL Materials

  • Book requests are typically ready to pick up within 5-7 business days.
  • Copy requests are typically ready to download within 1-2 business days.

Loan Periods

For books, the loan period is determined by the lending library and can range from 30 days to 90 days. You can request a renewal in advance of the due date. However, the renewal request may be denied by the lending library. You are responsible for any damage or for loss of the borrowed material while it is in your possession. If ILL materials are lost, damaged, or not returned, the owning library will submit an invoice for the replacement cost of each item. This cost will be billed to you. Scanned copies of articles and chapters are yours to keep.

Requesting Book Delivery

Faculty and staff are welcome to have items they request via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) be delivered to their Daytona Beach campus office instead of picking them up from the library.

When a book is received from another library to fill an ILL, an email is sent to the requesting patron advising them that the book is available at the library. Faculty and staff are given an option to reply to the email that they’d like to have the book delivered. The response should include a contact phone number, building name, and office number (i.e. COAS 202). The item is usually delivered the same day or within 24 hours. If no one is at the office to receive the item, it is returned to the library for the patron to pick up.
