Interlibrary Loan Requests

As part of Mikkelsen Library, the Interlibrary Loan Department works to facilitate and support the teaching, learning, and scholarship of Augustana University and Sioux Falls Seminary students, faculty and staff.  The Interlibrary Loan staff (Becky Folkerts) strive to provide accurate, timely, and consistent service in a courteous and informed manner in order to provide the best service to our users.

Faculty can place ILL orders by using the Interlibrary Loan link found in the library catalog and many of the library's electronic databases/resources. Users can send an e-mail to, or call the library at 605.274.4921. Printouts of items needed are also accepted at the Circulation Desk.  The patron’s name and email or phone should be printed clearly on each printout.

Most articles will be delivered electronically to the faculty's e-mail address. Books and media will be delivered to the faculty's building.

Librarian Instruction Request

The Augustana library plays a critical role in supporting and encouraging the learning process and promoting information literacy. Students and faculty are faced with an information environment that continues to increase in quantity and complexity. We believe that in an information rich, democratic society the leaders of the future must be able to use information effectively and ethically. The library’s program of information literacy focuses on librarians collaborating with faculty to ensure that students know how to locate, evaluate, synthesize and utilize information, regardless of format. Instruction ranges from a single visit to an integrated, series of visits to support student learning and resesarch.  To schedule a librarian visit, contact Lisa Brunick or your departmental liaison.

Audio-visual equipment is available for use by Augustana faculty & staff. Call Media Services (605.274.4920) to schedule delivery and pick-up of A-V equipment to your office or classroom.
