Resource Sharing (Interlibrary Loan)

Service Alert

Due to COVID-19 and the closure of libraries, we are not ordering books through interlibrary loan. Please request these items later once our library and our lenders are back at normal capacity.

We ARE requesting scans of book chapters, articles, and scanning sections of UR owned books. We are committed to helping you get through this time as best as we can.

Ordering Items

  • Use your ILLiad account to obtain items not available from UR Libraries. This service is available for current UR faculty, students and staff.
  • Check the OneSearch to see if the library already owns the item.
  • Find it even faster by searching the Open Access Resources listed below.

To Submit a Request to ILLiad:

  • Login to ILLiad using your UR netid and password or create an account. Then choose Book Request, Article request or Other Request from the left-hand menu and submit your request.
  • You can check in on an item's status by visiting this same account page.
