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.

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. Materials are scanned and delivered electronically to your ILLiad account. The general turnaround time is 24 hours (M-F).


Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery items are free of charge for UR faculty, staff, residents, fellows, postdocs, students and other UR affiliates.


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. We reserve the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in our judgment, fufillment of the order would violate copyright law.
