Interlibrary Loan & Article DELivery Service
Due to a required software upgrade, the Interlibrary Loan system will be unavailable from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on Tuesday, August 4, 2015. Users will not be able to place new requests, renew items, or view delivered PDFs during this time.
Interlibrary Loan users will never receive an email with instructions for reactivating or verifying Interlibrary Loan services. If you do receive such an email, please report it to the University of Delaware Interlibrary Loan Office.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service for requesting books, journal articles, DVDs, and other items that are needed for research but are not available in any University of Delaware Library collection.
Through the Article DELivery Service, Library staff will scan articles and book chapters from items in the University of Delaware Library print and microform collections for eligible users.
More information about delivery services and request forms is available on the Delivery Services Guide.
The Interlibrary Loan Office is located on the first floor of the Morris Library, and open Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Requested materials may be picked up at the Circulation and Reserve Desk when the ILL Office is closed.
The Interlibrary Loan Office works with libraries around the world to supply and obtain research materials.
