Welcome to the Interlibrary Loan Office

What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
Interlibrary Loan is a service by which Sims Library obtains research materials not available in the Sims Library.  Current students, faculty and staff are eligible to use ILL.

In order to request materials through interlibrary loan, all users must first register through ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system. After registering, users can request interlibrary loan materials through ILLiad, check the status of their requests, and view a history of requests submitted through ILLiad.


ILL items may be picked up and returned at the Circulation Desk. Faculty and Staff can request to have their items delivered to their department.
