Frequently Asked Questions
What is Interlibrary Loan? Who is eligible?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that provides you with access to library materials not held in the University of Memphis Libraries and not available in full-text through licensed University of Memphis databases. It is available to current University of Memphis students, faculty, and staff. The Memphis Public Library & Information Center may be able to help you if you do not qualify for University of Memphis ILL Services.
For other libraries wishing to submit an ILL request to U of M Libraries, we accept requests through OCLC, RapidILL, mail, email, or fax. Please see our Contact Details.
