Accreditation Information: MU Libraries: Information Delivery Services

The Marshall University Library system is a current member of the American Library Association (ALA), and ALA's division Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). These memberships allow us to share resources and participate in various networks that support functions such as cataloging, interlibrary loan, publishing, indexing, and acquisitions. A dynamic interlibrary loan and document delivery program provides materials from other libraries in electronic or print form, often in a matter of days. Access to an innovative e-book loan program through a robust academic library consortium, courier services, and rapid ILL services enhance turnaround time and overcome geographical limitations. Furthermore, the Marshall University Library system benefits from and contributes to additional interlibrary loan partnerships via the Interlibrary Delivery Service of PA. Their purpose "is to provide a cost effective efficient delivery service linking all types of libraries to support timely resource sharing throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. As an incorporated not-for-profit membership organization, IDS is supported by a state/local partnership which includes a state subsidy and local dues. Through IDS, member libraries share print and non-print library resources to meet the information needs of end users. Currently, IDS membership includes 409 libraries which comprise the service area of the Interlibrary Delivery Service of Pennsylvania. This total includes 181 Full Member libraries and 228 sites which are Affiliates of Full Member ("Parent") libraries" ( The Marshall University Libraries are also members of PALCI, which is a group of academic libraries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey & West Virginia.  Students, faculty, and staff can borrow materials directly from member libraries; delivery occurs within 3-5 business days.
