Interlibrary Services: How is ILL Different from ILU?

About the ILL and ILU services and policies at the Philip Weltner Library.

How is ILL Different from ILU?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows you to borrow materials from other libraries without having to visit them. You may request books, journal articles, microfiche, dissertations, and other materials not available in Philip Weltner Library. Once the material arrives, you may pick it up at the circulation desk.

Interlibrary Use (ILU) is a service where students, faculty, and staff of ARCHE member libraries may visit and borrow from the collections of other consortium libraries. You must obtain an ARCHE borrower's card from our library before visiting another institution. You will need a different card for each library you wish to visit.

Rememer that ARCHE member libraries will not charge for interlibrary loaning materials, but other libraries may.
