What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service free to the user through which you can request research materials, such as books, journal articles, book chapters, videos, and other materials that are not available at Coppin or at any of the University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) through Patron-Placed-Holds (PPH). Course textbooks may not be requested. Please click here for additional Interlibrary Loan Policy information.
What happens after I make a request?
After you make a request, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff will act on it by searching for other libraries that will loan or copy the desired material. Once the material arrives, you will be notified via email that your request is ready for retrieval. Loans (physical items) will be held at the Circulation Desk for you to check out, and article or chapter scans will be uploaded to your ILLiad account for you to download.
Who may use Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan at Moore Library is available to current students, faculty and staff.
