Where did the InterLibrary Loan (ILL) link go in WorldCat?

KSU Library System’s customized version of WorldCat.org was discontinued on July 1, 2019. You can still search the collections of more than 10,000 libraries worldwide for books as well as audio visual and archival materials. However, you can no longer automatically transfer the item’s information from WorldCat to the KSU ILLiad request form.

You can access the ILLiad request forms at https://kennesaw.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/STURGIS/logon.html. You can access WorldCat through our Find a Database list at library.kennesaw.edu or from WorldCat.org.

In order to best serve you and process your ILLiad requests as efficiently as possible, please include at least the following information:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Date of Publication (if important)
  • ISBN and OCLC Number - You can find the ISBN and OCLC Number under the Details section of the record.

For help with placing ILL requests for items discovered in WorldCat, please contact the ILL Office at illoan@kennesaw.edu or 470-578-6002.
