Delivery of Journal Articles 

All off campus students should log into Concordia Connect when attempting to access the library’s electronic resources.

When looking for articles, go to Research Databases, which is also found on the library’s home page.

As you look for articles, if there is something you find, but is not full text, you have two options:

1. Click on the “Request this item” button and fill out the form with an email you would like the document to be delivered.

2. If you need to request a specific article not found in our databases, complete the Interlibrary Loan Request. Articles are delivered to borrowers via email.

Delivery of Books, Dissertations and AV Materials to Out-of-State Students

To reduce waiting time for mail deliveries from the Klinck Memorial Library, check your local public, academic, or research libraries before submitting delivery requests.

Please note: Out-of-State students cannot borrow I-Share books (unless you want to visit the physical campus to pick up your material). To request books, out-of-state students must complete the Interlibrary Loan Request.

For book/AV materials, search the Library Catalog for the ebook or video streaming access prior to submitting a request for physical materials. If you would prefer physical books or AV materials to be mailed to you, complete the Interlibrary Loan Request.

For dissertations, search ProQuest Dissertations prior to submitting a request. To request dissertations not found in the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global database, complete the Interlibrary Loan Request.

Materials can be delivered to borrowers and returned to the Klinck Memorial Library via mail.

Returning of Books, Dissertations and AV Materials from Out-of-State Students

Library patrons may return Concordia’s materials as well as items borrowed through the I-Share catalog to the Klinck Memorial Library to the circulation desk, the outside drop box located by the main library building entrance, or any I-Share member library. Materials are discharged from the borrower's account at the location to which they are returned prior to being shipped back to the lending library. 

Materials borrowed from the non I-Share member library must be returned to the Klinck Memorial Library. Concordia ships materials back to the lending library where they are discharged from the borrower’s account.

Borrowers are responsible for return postage and for materials lost in the mail. Please return your items using this address:

Klinck Memorial Library
Concordia University Chicago
7400 Augusta St.
River Forest, IL 60305

Renewals

Log in to your account in the Library Catalog to renew items from I-Share. Renewals can also be completed by email or phone: 708-209-3050. Items recalled by other patrons may not be renewed.
