Interlibrary Loan: Distant & Online Users

interlibrary loan banner

We welcome the use of ILL by our distant and online students and faculty.

Books and other loaned materials

Please keep in mind that mailing times can be long. It can take up to two weeks for us to get the items from the lending library, plus the time it takes after we mail the item to you. If an item appears to have been lost in the mail, please let us know as soon as you become aware of it.

On occasion (especially for Canadian residents) items may be almost due or overdue by the time you receive it. If this is the case, please contact us right away and we will make every effort to renew the item for you. Renewals can also be requested from your ILL account.

Articles in the Foley Collection

If you would like a PDF scan of an article located in our print journals, on microfilm or fiche, or a chapter of a book owned by Foley Library, submit a request just as you would for ILL. We will make a scan of the article/chapter and deliver it to you through your ILL account.

Returning loaned materials

Foley Center Library covers the cost of shipping books to you, but you are responsible for return postage or to make arrangements for someone to return the items to campus.

Please address packages to:

Foley Library - ILL
