ABOUT ILL

Interlibrary Loan supplies materials not owned by the UVM Libraries for UVM students, faculty, staff, UVM Medical Center employees, and Health Research Associates.

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

Check out the ILL & Document Delivery FAQ page for more information about our services.

Document Delivery supplies electronic copies of articles and book chapters owned by UVM Libraries for eligible users. This includes book chapters and articles located in the David W. Howe Memorial Library, the Library Research Annex and the Silver Special Collections Library. Articles and chapters in microform format can be delivered to you electronically as well.

In compliance with UVM copyright policy no more than one book chapter from a single book and one article from a single journal/magazine issue will be scanned and delivered through the Document Delivery service.

How long does ILL and Document Delivery take?

  • Articles and chapters usually arrive in 3-5 business days.
  • Physical materials (ILL) usually arrive in 7-14 business days.
  • Material that is difficult to obtain (e.g. media, rare items, etc.) may take much longer.
  • To check on the status of your request, log in to your ILLiad account here.

You will be notified by e-mail when your materials arrive. Scans of articles and book chapters are delivered via e-mail. Physical materials that need to be picked up will be held at the Circulation Desk, Howe Library. To download your articles, log in to your ILLiad account.
