Interlibrary loan (ILL) facilitates the sharing of materials amongst libraries worldwide.
ILL Response to Covid-19
We are currently working remotely as the Library is closed due to COVID-19. We will continue to order electronic resources for delivery to users in ILLiad.
- Keep any ILL materials you still need. Renew what you can online in ILLiad. Contact ILL with any problems renewing, and we’ll push through manual renewals. Nothing will be billed until September.
- We are currently ordering only articles and scans for electronic delivery through ILLiad.
- Lending will fill electronic content only.
We use ILLiad to help our users obtain materials not available at the Middlebury College Libraries. ILL requests are submitted and held in the ILLiad System. Articles and book chapters are sent to your ILLiad account as PDFs.
We find and borrow resources that Middlebury does not have access to, and also lend our materials to other libraries and institutions.
Borrowing from Other Libraries
You can also send a request directly from many of the library’s electronic resources, such as WorldCat, Scopus, or other tools. Ask a librarian if you would like more information about this feature.
Information for Other Libraries
If you are requesting interlibrary loans from Middlebury, see “information for requesting libraries” in our ILL Research Guide for help.
