Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Can't find an item in the Law Library or the other libraries on campus? Use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system to obtain those items. We receive books and articles from libraries across the country and around the world. 


Logging in and Using the System

Your login is based on a combination of your journal's name and the article name. Both your login and your password are the same. Contact your article editor to obtain your login information. Passwords and login names are case-sensitive

Once you login, you may submit a new request. You will also use this page to monitor your outstanding requests and to retrieve articles and book chapters that have been delivered electronically. Books are delivered directly to the Article Carrel.

Please check your email regularly. We may need to contact you with questions related to your ILL request. Failure to respond to these emails will result in a delay in obtaining your materials.
