Interlibrary Loan

General Information

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) department obtains materials such as books, CDs, DVDs or articles from the collections of other libraries when the State Library does not own those items. These items are then picked up by local patrons or mailed to patrons who live outside the Bismarck/Mandan service area.

Generally, there is no fee for obtaining an item through interlibrary loan except return postage. If a fee is required to borrow an item, the State Library will secure your permission before confirming the request.

Please feel free to contact the Interlibrary Loan department at 701-328-3252 or if you have questions about interlibrary loan or copyright laws.
