What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a retrieval service in which the Library will borrow articles, books, etc. for you from other libraries that are not owned in print or online. Use the ILLiad system to place your request.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Before placing your Interlibrary Loan request please first make sure we do not own the book or have access to the journal article.
Current users will continue to use the same ILLiad password. If you are a new user, your password is the last 4 digits of your Student ID number. This can be found by clicking on My Profile on your myWilmU home screen.
