What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?

Libraries all over the world participate in Interlibrary Loan (ILL) in a cooperative effort to provide articles, books, and other materials to researchers, students, and others.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Some materials may be difficult to obtain, including bestsellers, books recently featured on TV talk shows, genealogical materials, special collections, rare books, expensive materials, or fragile items.
  • Loan periods for returnable items obtained through ILL vary widely due to circulation policies.  Check the due date printed on the label of your borrowed item or your KentLINK Account.
  • Textbook requests are not accepted.  Several alternative textbook resources offer low-cost and rental options.
