Current Loyola Law students, faculty, and staff may request materials not held by the Library. ILL services are not available to non-LLS users.
WHAT CAN I REQUEST THROUGH ILL?
Books, articles, and book chapters are the most frequently requested items. Many libraries do not lend audiovisual materials, rare books, reference books, archival materials, or textbooks. We will, however, do our best to fulfill your request. Please note that we generally do not request the following items via ILL:
- Items available in full-text in in electronic format.
- Materials not related to research, such as textbooks.
ILL requests are made using the Interlibrary Loan Request Form. Before filling out the form, please check the library catalog, as our library may already have the item available. Generally, the more information you provide, the faster the book or article will arrive.
Due dates are set by the lending library and should be taken very seriously. The lending library may suspend our borrowing privileges if we do not return their books.
To request a renewal, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Renewals are at the discretion of the lending institution; some libraries will not allow renewals or cannot renew because someone at their institution needs the item. Please return the item by the original due date if a renewal is not granted.
RECEIVING AND RETURNING MATERIALS
You will receive an email when your item(s) arrive.
- Articles are usually sent to the email address you provided when completing the ILL form.
- Books, periodicals, and other print materials may be picked up at the Rains Library Circulation Desk.
- Please return materials to a library staff member or place in the book drop by the due date.
The Library cannot guarantee the arrival date of an item, including the possibility that requests may go unfilled. Articles can usually be obtained within a few days while books can take a week or more.
