Interlibrary Loan service on hold for books

The library is suspending Interlibrary Loan services for books until we can open our doors again and libraries throughout the country are back in service. Therefore, the "Request an Interlibrary Loan" button will not appear as an option in the Discovery Service catalog for books we don't own. The ILL Request online form on our website is also hidden for the time being.
