Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a library-to-library loan service offered by Logan Library to student, faculty and staff users. The primary purpose of ILL is to assist scholarly research by obtaining materials not locally available. Users may requests books and other materials for loan or book chapters and articles for electronic delivery.
Interlibrary loan services are provided free of charge to all authorized users. *see policies
Interlibrary loan services are provided free of charge to all authorized borrowers. Special circumstances exist, though, such as borrowing costs charged by the lending institution, or copyright clearance fees. You can indicate how much you are willing to pay on your request form, and we will work within your limitations. If there are additional charges, or the item costs more than what you indicated, ILL staff will contact you before submitting your ILL request, to confirm that you are willing to pay these extra costs.
ILL borrowers who are late returning their ILL materials are assessed a fine in the amount of $.25 day per overdue item.
The borrower assumes all financial responsibility for ILL materials. If the materials are lost or damaged while in the borrower's possession, he/she/they must pay in full for any repair, replacement, or processing fees which the lending library charges. The library may place a hold on the borrower's account while payment is arranged.
