Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

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 augustanaill@gmail.com, 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. 

Off-Campus Access

The library offers faculty and staff off-campus access to the library's electronic resources via a proxy server. The login is the same as your myaugie/moodle login. For password information or to report a problem, call the library (605.274.4921) or e-mail a librarian (augielibrarians@augie.edu).

Test Proctor Service

Mikkelsen Library provides proctoring services without charge. The proctor policy articulates the procedures for professors and students. Carolyn Johnson (proctor@augie.edu - 605.274.4921) is the library’s coordinator of proctoring services. Any full-time library staff member may serve as the proctor. Professors must complete the Proctor Request Form before students can schedule exam times. There is no designated enclosed area for testing. Students will be seated near the staff area, but library staff will only provide occasional monitoring. After the Proctor Request Form has been received, students can arrange a time to test by e-mailing proctor@augie.edu. Students may not begin an exam within 90 minutes of the library closing. Check library hours.
