If you need articles, books, etc., not owned by Briggs Library....
Or if you are a distance student or employee who needs Briggs Library materials shipped to your home or office....
Follow these instructions to access your Tipasa interlibrary loan account:
When you receive email notification that your Tipasa article or loan has been delivered, read the message carefully for instructions on how to retrieve the article or where to pick up your loan.
Renewing items may take several days while we wait for the lending library to respond to the request. Your due date in Tipasa will change when the renewal is granted.
If the lending library does not grant us a renewal on the item, you will receive a RECALL notice by email.
If you have any questions, please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department: 605-688-5573 or ILLSDSU@sdstate.edu.
