Q: Are there late fees for interlibrary loan books?
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


Overdue interlibrary loan (ILL) items are billed at the regular Yale rate for the borrower's category. For most groups this is currently $0.50 per day. Fines are higher for items that have been recalled by the borrowing library.

Article links for ILL will remain for 30 days from delivery. Please save or view items before the 30-day deadline as they are permanently deleted from the server shortly after it passes.
