Q: Can I use Interlibrary Loan?
Answered by: Jessica Bower


Fall 2020

The library is continuing to process interlibrary loan requests for online articles and online chapters (items not available from Yale Library). Yale Alums are not currently able to request interlibrary loan. Find more information about current interlibrary loan policies at


Yale's interlibrary loan (ILL) service is open to all current students, faculty, and staff with borrowing privileges. Fellows, post-docs, and other researchers with library privileges included in their appointment are also eligible to use interlibrary loan. Yale alumni receive ILL access with the purchase of borrowing privileges. 

ILL services are not available to other independent researchers with paid privileges.

Contact the Privileges Office for more information regarding levels of library access at or by phone at 203-432-1775 during business hours.
