Physical Collections and Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Our book drop is open. You may return books to the book drop located to the left (north) of the library doors inside the Health Sciences Building atrium. Please do not use the red drop box located outside of the building; it is not the library's drop box. 

No late fees will be assessed for Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials, nor Wegner Library materials at this time. However, we would appreciate the prompt return of circulating reserve items such as ACLS, PALS, STABLE, and BLS manuals. 

If you need an item from the Wegner Library collection, please email wegner@usd.edu to arrange a possible time for pick-up. Please include your full name, phone number and your affiliation with USD or partner organization. Materials may also be mailed.  

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is available; place your requests as you normally would using ILLiad https://usd.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/WS$/logon.html 
For additional assistance using Wegner ILLiad, see this guide: https://libguides.usd.edu/wegnerILL
Physical items needed from other libraries may not be available at this time. Many libraries are closed or have restricted access to their collections.
