What is Interlibrary Loan?

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.

What can I get through Interlibrary Loan?

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.

Sending a book from one SUNY Orange campus library the other SUNY Orange campus library is called Campus to Campus delivery. To request a book from a library you are not in use ILLiad.

How long does it take to get my request?

Most items take between 48 hours and one week to arrive.  You will be notified via e-mail when an item is available.  Item(s) that have arrived will be kept at the circulation desk until the due date.

Campus to Campus delivery will take up to 3 business days.

How much does it cost?

Usually there are no charges for ILL items.  We will inform you if the lending institution charges and will only send for the item if you have expressed a willingness to pay for it.  For article requests, there may be copyright charges that you will be asked to pay.
