What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
Interlibrary Loan, or "ILL" for short, is a free service that borrows library materials from other institutions. If an item you need is not in our collection, you can submit a request and we can try to obtain it from another library. Current Students, Faculty, and Staff are all eligible to use this service. Types of items you can borrow:
-Articles/ Book Chapters
-CDs/ Musical Scores
-Films (DVD, VHS)
