Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan Services at the IUPUI University Library will be impacted as part of the period when classroom learning is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.

We will continue to attempt to fill article and book chapter requests from University Library patrons, though availability and delivery time may be affected by other libraries’ closures. If you need a book or film to complete your coursework or research, please submit a purchase request and the Library will attempt to license an e-book or streaming video to meet your need.

For more information on the how the library is being affected by the period when classroom learning is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 please refer to our webpage on the subject.

Borrowing from Other Libraries


The Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) allows current IUPUI faculty, staff, and students affiliated with University Library or the Herron School of Art Library to borrow materials not owned by the library.

In addition to Interlibrary Loan, the library offers the Article Delivery Service, which allows current IUPUI faculty, staff, and students affiliated with University Library to request articles from within University Library’s print collection. Articles are scanned and delivered to the user’s ILL account.

Interlibrary Loan and Article Delivery Service requesting is done through the same online system, ILLiad. You can find more information about ILL Policies and Guidelines and other Resource Sharing services such as UL Article Delivery Service, Faculty Proxy Account Information and the Articles on Demand service for faculty on the Interlibrary Loan Logon web page. Log in to submit an ILL request.
