Welcome to SU Interlibrary Loan
What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service through which you can request materials, such as books, journal articles, book chapters, videos, and other materials that are not available in the Seattle University Libraries or in Summit. In general we do not accept ILL requests for textbooks for courses. Please see the Interlibrary Loan Policy/FAQ for additional information.
When you submit a request, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff will act on it by searching for other libraries that will loan the desired material. Once the material arrives you will be notified via email, and you may then come to the Lemieux Library Circulation Desk to check out your requested items.
Who may use Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan at Lemieux Library is available to current students, faculty and staff. Patrons from the Law school should use ILL services from the Law Library.
ILLiad is the system that manages your ILL requests. Using ILLiad you can track the status of your requests, check due dates, renew checked out materials, and view your ILL borrowing history.
The first time you use ILLiad you will be prompted to fill out a one-time registration form, and then you can dive right in!
NOTICE: WARNING OF COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS
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.
The Lemieux Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copy request if, in its judgment, fulfillment of that request would involve violation of copyright law.
