Log in to the University of Delaware Interlibrary Loan System

Due to required maintenance, the University of Delaware Interlibrary Loan system may be unavailable between 1:00 AM and 9:00 AM on Saturday, July 16.

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 ILL Office.

Getting Started

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.
