What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan is a FREE service that the Law Library arranges through agreements with other libraries to provide access to materials that we may not have in our own collection for academic use.
ILL pulls materials first from the Law Library. If the material cannot be found here, then the search extends to the Lee Library and to other libraries after. It is rare for materials not to be available through this process.
How To Make A Request
- Sign in using your BYU NetID
- Click on “Book, Article, or Other”
- Fill in the required information
- Finally, click “Submit Request” at the bottom of the page
Still Have Questions?
Set up an appointment with Melanie, who is the Access Services Librarian; she will be able to help you navigate through the ILL process and help you obtain the materials you need.
Setting Up Your Account
To set up your account, go to illiad.lib.byu.edu/ILLiad/ and sign in using your net ID and password, and then fill out your account information.
You may also set up an appointment with Melanie and she will be able to assist you in creating your account.
In most cases we are able to obtain the items you need, but occasionally some items cannot be sent physically. The Access Services Librarian will work with you to reach a solution. There are many other specific items that can be scanned and obtained rather than entire publications, textbooks, or print including:
- Journal Articles
- Book Chapters
- Page Requests
- Materials Cited in Footnotes
- Print Publications
- Table of Contents
- CD’s, DVD’s, etc.
