Interlibrary Loan (ILL), in conjunction with Odum Express, provides access to and delivery of books, articles, and journals to individuals and departments. These services enhance the ability to research and reference a broad spectrum of materials encompassing not only the University System of Georgia but also institutions across the nation and even – in limited cases - internationally. They are provided largely free of charge, though nominal fees may apply in limited circumstances.

ILL is available to all students, faculty, and staff. It provides access to books, journals, and other materials that are not owned by or housed at VSU in addition to those items that we already have access to. 

Odum Express is the delivery service offered through ILL and is only available to faculty and staff for materials to be delivered directly to departmental front desks. 

Students are not eligible for ILL or Odum Express mail delivery of materials directly to their home addresses. 

To begin accessing materials immediately, logon to ILLiad.

If you have questions regarding these services which are not addressed in the FAQs, or wish to offer suggestions or accolades, contact us at or (229) 333-5867.

Thank you for utilizing Interlibrary Loan and Odum Express.
