Interlibrary Loan

General guidelines to keep in mind as you request items:

  • One item for one user
  • Temporary loan, subject to recall by the lending library
  • Renewals may or may not be possible, based on lending library policy
  • Chapter copies are not to exceed more than 10% of the entire work
  • Article copies are subject to copyright restrictions
  • Entire issues or volumes cannot be borrowed, must request article by article
  • ILL items cannot be placed on reserve

Requesting Items

One of our primary functions in Dugan Library is connecting researchers to resources.  Interlibrary loan is a powerful tool that we use to supplement the resources we have for faculty and students.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you request books, journal articles and videos:

  • Provide complete citations when possible (especially for journal articles!)
    • We understand this isn't always possible, especially when working from others reference lists
  • Long lists of requests will be filled as time allows
    • We receive lots of requests from students and faculty and do our best to get them requested in a timely manner
  • You should not lend books/videos that you have requested through ILL to students or other faculty
    • If multiple copies are needed, we can request more than one copy
  • You are more than welcome to request "non-academic" items for your personal use, we already have several who do!
  • Please return all loaned materials on time, often we can renew, but renewals must be requested before an item is due
