Interlibrary Loan & Copy Services

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service for UR affiliates to borrow books and obtain journal articles not owned by or currently unavailble from the Miner Library. Submit a request through ILLiad and Library staff will obtain materials from other libraries on your behalf.


Items obtained from non-UR libraries have the following charges per item:

  • Faculty/Staff/Postdocs

Items obtained from other UR libraries are free for UR affiliates.

It generally takes 1-2 business days to fill a journal article request and approximately 7-10 days to fill a book request. However, many requests are filled sooner.


Document Delivery

Document Delivery is a service for UR affliates to request copies of journal articles or book chapters from materials in the Miner Library collection. Requests are submitted through ILLiad and the cost is $5.00 per item. Materials are scanned and delivered electronically to your ILLiad account. The general turnaround time is 24 hours (M-F).

Please note: U.S. Copyright Law prohibits the copying of multiple chapters from a single book, multiple articles from a single journal issue or an entire work. The Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in it's judgment, fufillment of the order would involve violation of the copyright law.
