To request an Interlibrary Loan, please complete this form. Interlibrary Loan enables regional libraries to lend to one another. Library accounts must be in good standing (owing less than $20 in fees) to submit an ILL request. You may only have three active requests at a time.

Please note that our ability to borrow through Interlibrary Loan is limited.

These items may NOT be requested via ILL:

  • Audiovisual materials (CD, DVD, audiobook, video game, etc.)
  • Books published within the last 6 months
  • Books held at IU Bloomington libraries
    • Patrons may check out items from IU Libraries with a state ID at no cost

You may fill out our Suggest a Purchase form for items that cannot be interlibrary loaned.

There are potential charges when requesting an ILL item and we will contact you in this event. The ILL process takes between 2-4 weeks and the due date is determined by the lending library. You will be notified when your ILL hold is ready.

For more information, please see our page on Requests & Holds.

Please submit only one title per request form.

Series number, ISBN, edition, publisher, etc.
