If you have not yet set up an ILLiad account for ILL, please go to the logon form below and fill in the requested information. More information is available on our Borrowing for Users tab.

Limitations and Loan Periods
Limitations on Loans
The conditions of ILL services are set by national and regional codes as well as by the policies of each lending library. The following types of materials ordinarily cannot be requested for loan:
Exceptions to this list are occasionally made. Therefore, consult the ILL office about any research material not owned by the library.
No limit has been set on the number of items a patron may borrow. However, borrowers are reminded not to order more than they will be able to use during the allowed loan period. For best service, please submit requests as early in the semester as possible.
The lending library determines the length of the loan period for books, which is usually between one and four weeks.
Renewals should be requested only in unusual circumstances, and should be requested BEFORE the due date. Many libraries do not allow any renewals, so patrons are urged to plan their research to complete the use of ILL material before the due dates.
Patron Initiated Purchase
The Ordering Department purchases books requested through Interlibrary Loan that meet certain criteria and within a certain price limit. These items are then rush cataloged and placed on hold for users. This on-demand service has been very successful and allows users access to the materials for a longer period of time than typically allowed by Interlibrary Loan requests.
The option to request an item be purchased will be presented to you when you request and item through Interlibrary Loan.
