Interlibrary Loan

For books (including thesis or manuscripts), book chapters, DVDs, or CDs, fill out this online form or email

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a process where we borrow materials we don’t own from other libraries. This process can take up to a week (more or less, depending on the availability and format), so please plan ahead.

This service is available for current UT faculty, staff, students, registered alumni, emeritus faculty and Friends of the Library.

ILL is not available for currently assigned textbooks, and it is sometimes difficult to borrow audio/visual material, reference books, and whole issues of journals and magazines.

Before submitting a request, please check our catalog to see if we own a book, DVD, or CD, and Ejournals to see if we have access to an article.

We will notify you when books are available for pick-up at our circulation desk. The loan period for books is determined by the lending library, which is normally 3 weeks. Please contact, if you would like to request a renewal. Please note renewals are at the discretion of the lending institution.

If there are any problems in locating the material (or there is a charge associated with borrowing, which is uncommon), we will contact you.

If you need any help with your research, please don’t hesitate to contact the reference desk .
