History: Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Explained

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service available to the students, staff, and faculty of the University of Louisville. A valid UofL Libraries' borrower card is required for ILLiad registration.

ILL is a way for you to obtain study and research materials that are not owned by the UofL Libraries.

You can borrow items, or request photocopies of items located at other libraries around the world. We can obtain nearly anything that has been published, including books, journals, video and audio recordings, and microforms.

Discover. Create. Succeed.
