Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

***Please note: Due to contamination concerns and staffing reductions, physical interlibrary loan services have been suspended at SUNY Erie and most libraries across the country. Interlibrary loans services for electronic articles are still available at this time.***

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service whereby a user in one library can borrow books, articles, and other items from another library.

SUNY Erie partners with other libraries to loan our materials and to borrow their materials. This service greatly expands the amount of items we can provide. As a user, you make the request at your SUNY Erie library or from the internet. SUNY Erie library staff will then process the request and notify you when your item arrives.

You can also request Interlibrary loans directly through the  IDS and  WorldCat Local catalogs.
