  1. Review the dissertation table of contents and find a page range for the literature review.
  2. Locate the ILL article request form. Login to your AU account.
  3. Provide needed dissertation details and specify the pages needed.

ILL article requests are emailed to users as PDF attachments.

Interlibrary Loan

Free interlibrary loan - or ILL - is available to AU students, faculty, and staff for articles not available in databases or print collections of AU Library or Ashland Theological Seminary Library.
