Information Literacy & Instruction

Xavier Library Resource Center’s information literacy program exists to support the growth of information literacy across the university’s curriculum. Consultations are offered to faculty in support of individual courses and even specific assignments. Librarians collaborate with faculty in on-demand course-related instruction sessions to boost information literacy as students acquire research skills in their disciplines.  Individual research consultations are offered to students and faculty alike to address more sophisticated needs or specific tools/resources. For more information about our program, please contact Johannah White, Instruction Coordinator. To request course-related instruction for your class, please use the online form below.

Interlibrary Loan

The Interlibrary Loan Service is intended to provide members of the Xavier University student body, faculty, and staff with access to library materials not in the Xavier University Library. Through this service, the Library is able to obtain materials from most libraries in North America and in several areas of the world. Some libraries may agree to lend dissertations and audiovisual materials. However, in most cases, books and photocopied materials can be obtained with more ease. 

Interlibrary Loan Requests can be submitted online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have never used ILLiad before, you will need to follow the "first-time user"  instructions to create a new user account which will serve as your single stop portal for requesting loan materials.
