InterLibrary Loan Instructions for Lincoln Students, Faculty and Staff

About ILL | Form


ILL services are free of charge to all Lincoln students, faculty and staff. Prior to submitting a request by completing the ILL request form at http://www.lincoln.edu/library/illform.html, Lincoln users should check Voyager, Lincoln's Online Public Access Catalog, to determine if the library owns the material.

Submitting Requests

Requests can be submitted by completing the ILL request form at http://www.lincoln.edu/library/illform.html.

Requests submitted in excess of suggested limits will be processed as time allows or according to any priority you have indicated.

In rare cases, a lending library may impose an extraordinarily high fee that may need to be discussed with the requestor before the ILL transaction is completed.

Loan Periods and Renewals

Most books received through ILL may be kept for 3 or 4 weeks. Loan instructions are provided with each item. Journal articles received do not usually need to be returned. Loan periods, renewal periods, and any restrictions on the use of loaned material are at the discretion of the lending library. Contact the ILL Office in advance of the due date to inquire about the renewal of the material. ILL materials should be returned to the Circulation department or ILL Office on or before the due date to ensure continued good relations with the lending library.

Notification and Pick-up

When requested ILL material is received or is determined to be unavailable, users are notified by telephone or email. Patrons can retrieve requested materials at the Circulation Department by presenting their valid Lincoln University Identification (ID) card.
