Bell Library COVID-19 Updates:Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Check back to this page for updates on how Bell Library's services and policies are changing in response to COVID-19.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) has resumed physical borrowing, and continues to provide digital items such as e-books and PDFs of articles and book chapters.


Due to reduced availability, physical books ordered through ILL may take longer than usual to arrive at library.


Physical books can be picked up at the Bell Library Circulation Desk, brought to your car through our curbside pickup program, or (for qualifying patrons) shipped to your residence by means of our Home Delivery Service.


PDFs may be accessed and downloaded from your Interlibrary loan account.
