Interlibrary Loan & Annex Material

If we don't have the item that you want in our collections, we have agreements with other libraries that allow us to share materials.

Less than half of the PAMS Library collections are actually on the shelf there. The rest are located in two Annexes. This material can be retrieved by logging into ILLiad and filling out the online form for requesting Annexed items or by using the "I Want It" button in the CAT. It normally takes 1-2 working days to retrieve this material. If the item that you want is stored in the on campus annex, located in the Academic Activities Building, you can go there to use it. This annex is open Tuesday and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 12 noon. The off campus annex is not open to the public.
