Interlibrary Loan (ILL) supports the instructional, research, and scholarly activities of currently employed or enrolled West Lafayette faculty, staff, and students by obtaining research material not owned by the Purdue University Libraries. Materials requested through UBorrow will also be delivered through Interlibrary Loan.
Place your requests using the secure ILL System. Active Purdue Career ID is required for login.
If a Purdue Libraries book that you need is currently checked out, you may place a recall on it using the "Recall this Item" link, or you may place an interlibrary loan request for it and we will borrow it from another library.
You will be notified when the material you requested is ready for pick-up or download. For currently employed West Lafayette faculty, staff, and visiting scholars, we deliver the research material you need to your desktop or offfice quickly and efficiently.
