Interlibrary Loan Services

Due to the closure of our library locations, the Interlibrary Loan department is no longer able to request physical materials, or provide scans from materials on site.  We are still committed to providing resources to you. At this time, we can continue to request chapters or journal articles for you. Please use the book chapter/article request form in your ILLiad account to request materials.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows you to request materials we don’t have at University Libraries. Penn State faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students are eligible to use the service. You’ll need a My Library Account and ILL (ILLiad) account to use the service.  See our ILL FAQ for more details.

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 specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose 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.
