Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Lending

The Law Library can lend many materials to another domestic library upon request. Items circulate for four weeks, and may be renewed once for another two weeks unless requested by a Law Library patron.  The Law Library can also provide scans of many articles and chapters through interlibrary loan.  Charges for these services are listed below.

Borrowing libraries are responsible for the safety of borrowed materials from the time the material leaves the Law Library until it is returned to the Law Library. If damage or loss occur, the borrowing library must meet all costs of repair or replacement, as specified by the Law Library.

As a general rule, the Law Library does not lend non-circulating materials such as periodicals, looseleafs, reference books, reserve materials, or media resources.

Interlibrary loan requests may be made electronically through OCLC or email.

Interlibrary Loan Lending Charges

The Law Library encourages the use of OCLC IFM.  Invoices sent with requested materials will incur a $10 service fee.  An invoice is due and payable no later than 30 days after the invoice date.  Overdue accounts may result in the suspension of borrowing privileges.
