InterLibrary Loan @ The CSS Library

The College of St. Scholastica Library offers you access to almost 55,000 print and electronic journals, magazines, and newspapers. Our library shelves hold over 100,000 print volumes, with even more titles available electronically through our library catalog, ScholastiCATItems that are not owned by the CSS library can be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

We have borrowing agreements through our MnPALS consortium that allow us to borrow from libraries in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota.  Click here for a tutorial on how to submit an Interlibrary Loan request.

You may receive a cancellation letter stating that we are unable to obtain your request through MnPALS. If you are still interested in obtaining the item you may request it through ILLiad. ILLiad allows us to request items outside of our consortium. When making requests in ILLiad please add a note that the item was unfilled through MnPALS.
