Interlibrary Loan FAQs

COVID-19 Service Changes

We are currently available for e-resource requests such as PDFs of papers, articles, and chapters. E-books are often difficult to obtain but we will do our best to find one. Visit our FAQ to learn more.

Physical items, such as DVDs and print books, and scans of UConn-owned print materials are not available at this time. Please keep any physical materials you have currently checked out until further notice. We have extended all due dates and waived fines and fees for these items.

If you have a question regarding your requests please contact udoc@uconn.edu.

Who can use Interlibrary Services?

UConn faculty, staff, currently enrolled students and visiting scholars with an active Library account, UConn NetID and UConn email address. No other email addresses are supported. If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact us.

Create your ILLiad account

Before placing a request, the first time you visit MyILLiad you will be asked to complete your MyILLiad profile.

Is there a charge to use the service?

Our goal is to support academic research, learning, and professional development so there is no cost to you. We ask for your discretion when placing requests because requests come with a cost to the University.
