Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is an international cooperative program that was established to provide patrons with access to materials not owned by their libraries. Any current SUNY Orange student, staff, or faculty member who is not a delinquent user as defined by circulation policy may use the service.
Books, periodical articles, audio-visual materials, dissertations, and ERIC documents may be requested, as well as items that are lost, missing, or on loan from the SUNY Orange collection. New material requests will be attempted, but owning libraries may not be willing or able to supply the item.
