Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
The staff of the State Library of Arizona will assist Arizona Legislators
and legislative staff, Arizona state agency employees and regular genealogy
clients with the location and loan of materials from libraries around
the country. Also, materials that circulate from Library and
Archives' collections are loaned to requesting libraries or sent in electronic
format via the Ariel® document delivery system. For more

Resources that are not available in the Library and Archives' collections
may be requested through Interlibrary Loan by:
- Members of the Arizona State Legislature
- Members of legislative staff and staff of Arizona state government agencies
- Genealogy clientele
(requests must be for Genealogy Materials Only, e.g., out-of-state
newspapers on microfilm; photocopies from or loan of genealogy books)
Start by checking the Library and Archives' online
catalog to see if the item is in one of the Library and Archives'
collections or contact a librarian at the State Library of Arizona's reference
desk or at the Genealogy desk to do the search for you.
If the item is not in the Library and Archives' collections, complete
an Interlibrary Loan Request Form available at the State Library of Arizona's
reference desk or in the Genealogy reading room.
Genealogists who are not able to come to Library and Archives to read
borrowed materials should place Interlibrary Loan requests for materials
using their local library’s Interlibrary Loan service.
Lending is a service used by other libraries to request the loan of a
specific item (or the photocopying of specific pages, where permitted)
from the Library and Archives' collections.
