As part of the Mikkelsen Library, the Interlibrary Loan Department works to facilitate and support the teaching, learning, and scholarship of Augustana University and Sioux Falls Seminary students. The Interlibrary Loan staff 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 and staff can place ILL orders by using the Interlibrary Loan link found in the library catalog and in many of the library's electronic databases/resources. Users can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the library at 605.274.4921. Printouts of requested items 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 staff or student's e-mail address. E-mail is also used to notify users that their books or media ILLs are availble to be picked up.
Media Services provides students of Augustana and the Sioux Falls Seminary with resources to design, create, and present their multimedia projects. Media Services and the Media Lab are located on the lower level of the library.
