About the Service...

Interlibrary lending is a resource sharing service that allows users of a library lacking specific items to borrow them from another library.

Who is Eligible to Use It...

UND students, faculty, and staff¹ may request  materials from other libraries, using the library's ILLIAD interlibrary loan request ordering system.

What May Be Requested...

The list of items that may be requested includes (but is not limited to)

• journal articles,

books, and

audio/visual materials.

How Loaned Materials are Delivered and Returned...

Articles will normally be delivered electronically (by pdf) to the requestor's ILLIAD account inbox, and do not need to be returned to the library.

Physical Item Delivery varies by campus.

Grand Forks Campus: Items intended for Grand Forks-based users will be sent to the library where they can be checked out from the circulation desk.

Satellite Clinical Campuses / Distance Students: physical item requests from the borrowers at the other clinical campuses and/or distance students will be shipped directly to the requestor's postal address. The library covers outbound shipping costs. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the requestor.

Duration of Interlibrary Loans...

Lending times for physical materials (print books and audio/visual materials) are determined by the loaning library. Loan renewals may be requested.

Concerning Service Costs...

There is usually no cost for this service.²
