Intro to Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that expands Library user access tremendously by allowing library patrons to borrow articles and books from other libraries around the world at no cost.

This service is available to all current students, faculty, and staff

By connecting to the world of knowledge available through tools such as WorldCat and other Library Databases, patrons are empowered to find more and better resources than ever.
