Interlibrary Loan

INTERLIBRARY LOAN

Overview

Interlibrary loan (ILL) provides current students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to obtain books, journal articles, and other resource materials which are not available through the library's collections. ILL allows the library to supplement its collections and enhance research opportunities. The maximum number of books that may be requested via ILL depends upon your status. See the Borrowing & Renewing page for more information. Before submitting an ILL request, carefully check existing resources on the library website.

Fees

Fees

Generally, materials are provided to the user at no cost. Some lending libraries may require a fee for items requested and the ILL staff will communicate with you in such instances.

Individuals failing to retrieve items borrowed from another library will be charged a $5.00 fee in addition to any lending charges. ILL borrowing privileges will be suspended until payment is made.
