Architecture: Finding books and media

Find Books and Media at USD

Search our Catalog

Request Books From Other Libraries

If a book is not available at the USD Libraries you have two options:

Request your book from the Circuit (the combined catalog for USD, SDSU, UCSD, CSU San Marcos and San Diego County Public Libraries). If you find the book you need in the Circuit you can simply make an online request and have the book delivered to Copley Library.                   

If a book is not available through the Circuit, or if USD does not have access to a particular article, you can make an interlibrary loan request. ILLiad is the electronic system you use to request an item through Interlibrary Loan. To make a request, simply log in with your MySanDiego username and password.  The library's Interlibrary Loan Department will borrow your book from participating libraries worldwide.
