Interlibrary Loan (ILL) FAQ


Interlibrary Loan offers free access to books and journal articles not currently available within the University of Minnesota Twin Cities' collections to promote coursework and scholarly research to Twin Cities campus faculty, staff, and students, excluding Law. Law school students, faculty, and staff should use the Law Library's Interlibrary Loan services.

Some items are very difficult to obtain, including reference books, test/survey manuals, very old or rare items, software, audiovisual materials, and entire journal issues. We make our best effort to obtain materials you request, but cannot guarantee that your request will be filled successfully.

If you are a borrowing library wishing to request items from MNU, please visit our Lending web site.

To request an item through ILL, please log in to our ILLiad system.
