Interlibrary Loan Requests

As part of Mikkelsen Library, the Interlibrary Loan Department works to facilitate and support the teaching, learning, and scholarship of Augustana College and Sioux Falls Seminary students.  The Interlibrary Loan staff (Jan Brue Enright & 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.

Students 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 use the ILL form, 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 student's e-mail address. Students will receive an e-mail when books and media are available to be picked up in the library.

Laptop Checkout

The library has 26 laptops that are available for check out and use in the library. Your ID will allow you to check out the laptop for up to 6 hours for use in the library. For more information, stop by the main circulation desk.

Off-Campus Access

The library offers Augustana and Sioux Falls Seminary students off-campus access to the library's electronic resources via a proxy server. The login is now your Moodle/my.augie login.

Wireless Access

The library provides wireless access for Augie students as well as Sioux Falls Seminary students. Students must open a Web browser and log in using your Augustana or SF Seminary network login (your netware login/password and select your context in the pull-down list). You are required to run CCA (Cisco Clean Access) to make sure your systems are worm and virus free. If you are using a personal laptop, library staff are happy to assist you or connect you with the Information Technology Help Desk (lower level, Madsen Center).
