Interlibrary Loan

Request Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan requests will be limited to electronic materials (e.g. journal articles, book chapters) from other libraries and will be filled on a case-by-case basis, depending on our partner institutions’ availability during this time. Resources owned by Campbell Libraries may be requested for pick-up.

Resources not owned by the Campbell University Libraries can be borrowed from other libraries through ILLiad, an interlibrary loan (ILL) system available to Campbell faculty, staff, and students as an aid to research and study. Using ILLiad, you can place interlibrary loan requests online and check your interlibrary loan request status and history. Check out the online tutorial to learn more about ILLiad.

Faculty Document Delivery Service: Faculty may use ILLiad to request campus or electronic delivery of both Campbell library materials and interlibrary loans.

Log into ILLiad by using your Blackboard user name and password.

You can order almost any article or book through ILLiad, but a few rules and restrictions apply.

  • Please do not request materials owned by Campbell which simply are in use.
  • Please do not request course textbooks. These can be purchased at the bookstore.
  • Articles usually arrive in 2-3 days and will be posted in your ILLiad account.
  • Books usually arrive in 3-7 days. They must be picked up at the Research Assistance Desk at Wiggins Memorial Library.
  • Users will be charged a fine of $1.00 per day on overdue ILL items.
  • Refer any questions to the Research Assistance librarians.

Copyright Restrictions

The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purposes other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
