Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service for faculty, students, and staff of NYU Law school.
Non-NYU Law School faculty, students, and staff should use Bobst Library's ILL services or the ILL services offered by their local public library.
ILLiad is the portal used by NYU Law School to process all ILL requests. ILLiad allows you to place and track ILL requests, check due dates, renew items, and view your ILL borrowing history.
Before submitting an ILL request through ILLiad, you must set up your ILLiad account. Please complete the one-time registration form and create a username and password.
If you forgot your password, enter your username in the Change Password page and click "Reset Password."
If you forgot your username, please contact the ILL Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ILL Department will do their best to attempt to obtain most types of materials provided they are not owned by NYU.
Please bear in mind that most libraries will NOT lend the following types of materials:
Materials are usually received within 5-10 working days. Turnaround time may be affected by the availability of the material, the location of the lending institution, and their staffing.
In cases where one person submits an extremely large number of requests at one time, it may be necessary, in the interest of fairness, to balance the processing of these requests relative to other incoming requests. For that reason, bulk requests may take somewhat longer. The ILL Department reserves the right to limit the number of items processed.
NYU Law students may a scan of items owned in print in the NYU Law School Library.
To request a scan, please enter SCAN REQUESTED in the "Notes" field of your ILLiad request.
The ILL Department also reserves the right to reject excessive scanning requests and any request which may constitute a violation of copyright.
All loan periods are set by the lending institutions. In general, loan periods are 3 - 6 weeks, with one renewal allowed. The ILL department makes an effort to acquire materials with the longest possible loan period.
ILL material is occasionally recalled before its due date by the lending institution. We will notify you if such circumstances should arise.
ILL is provided free of charge to NYU Law faculty, students, and staff.
Overdue fines will be assessed in accordance to the lending library's policies as to fines, costs, and fees. You are responsible for any fines assessed by a lending library for print or physical material(s) returned after its due date. If you lose or misplace an ILL item, you will also be responsible for replacement costs.
Failure to pay fines and/or failure to return ILL items can also result in the suspension of library privileges.
