InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

A Guide to ILL at Wellesley.

What is ILL?

Do you need a resource that Wellesley does not have or that is currently checked out?  Have you hit a "pay wall" while looking for the full text of an article or book chapter ?  Place an ILL request and we'll try to get it for you!

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) is the sharing of library materials worldwide. We find and borrow the resources you need from other libraries that Wellesley does not have available and lend our materials as well.  Loan requests (books, dvd/cds, scores) will be sent to our library for you to pick up and electronic requests for articles, book chapters or eBooks are sent to your ILL account as pdfs.

How do I login to my ILL account? 

Login to your ILL account using DUO. 

How do I make requests? Use the tabs on the side menu to find out more about placing ILL requests.


We're happy to help!
