Interlibrary Loan Service at Bailey/Howe


Interlibrary Loan supplies materials not owned by the UVM Libraries for eligible users.

Items that typically do not circulate through ILL include: reference sets, whole periodicals sets, audio/video materials, software, genealogical materials, test materials, maps, unpublished works, and rare and archival materials. Please contact the ILL staff with questions or read the ILL FAQ.

Interlibrary Loan works best for users with one-time, short-term needs. Users who have long-term need of publications should recommend a purchase.

Class textbooks/required material cannot be ordered through ILL. Why?

Who may use this service

University of Vermont students, staff, and faculty may use this service.
