How can I use Interlibrary Loan to request an article from another library?

Last updated on Aug 08, 2022    InterLibrary Loan find sources borrowing


If you have found the article through a database and used the "Article Linker" button to determine that you will need to request it from another library, click on the "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan" link on the "Article Linker" results page.

When prompted, log into your ILL account. The request form should have been filled out automatically by the system. If some spaces have been left empty - that's okay! Scroll down and click on "Submit Request."

You will receive an email when your article arrives, usually within 1-3 business days. You will be able to download and save the file from your ILLiad account page.
