  • ILL requests can be made anytime but are processed Monday through Friday.
  • Almost all article ILL requests are fulfilled within 1-3 business days. It can take 3 days to 2 weeks for ILL books to arrive in the mail.
  • Requests can be made by filling out the form below.
  • Also, online Databases have an option to Request via ILL. If asked to enter a max cost enter 0.
  • Articles and book chapters will be emailed to you. If you can’t pick up a requested book at the library, it can be mailed to you.
  • ILL services are available to all UIU faculty, staff, and students nationally and abroad.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of the 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.
