Q: Can I use ILL to get a copy of an eBook available at another university?
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


Due to licensing restrictions, electronic books and other electronic resources are often not available via InterLibrary Loan. If you are a Yale student, staff or faculty member, you might instead request that the Yale Library purchase a copy.

Watch the video below for more information on making a purchase request.
