Interlibrary Loan: Home

Interlibrary Loan at GC


When the LRC does not have an item you’re looking for you may be able to acquire it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). This service allows the library to borrow a book from another library. This service is available to Georgetown College faculty, staff, students, BSK faculty/staff, and BSK students. All interlibrary loan requests are handled through Tipasa, our interlibrary loan system. For ILL policies click here.

If you have problems or questions relating to InterLibrary Loan, please contact Michele Ruth at 502-863-8412 or

While logged in to your GC Tipasa account you can make requests, track requests, and download articles you have requested.

First time users will be asked to fill out a brief registration form before making requests.

What is Tipasa?

Tipasa is the system that manages your ILL requests. Using Tipasa you can track the status of your requests, check due dates, renew checked out materials, and view your ILL borrowing history.

The first time you use Tipasa you will be prompted to fill out a one-time registration form, and then you can start making requests!
