Our policy is based on the interlibrary loan code set forth by the American Library Association.
What is ILL?
ILL stands for Interlibrary Loan. It is a service through which patrons can request to borrow materials that Schmidt Library does not currently own. These materials can include books, journal articles, DVDs, microfilm, scores, and some periodicals.
Schmidt Library uses a program called ILLiad to process most ILL requests.
EZ Borrow is similar to ILLiad, where patrons can borrow books that we do not currently own. EZ Borrow is used for requesting books only.
ILL vs. EZ Borrow
Both systems allow patrons to borrow materials, but with EZ Borrow you can only borrow books. EZ Borrow requests also typically arrive faster than ILLiad requests, within 3-5 days of the initial request.
