Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery
Students, employees, and emeritus retirees of Lafayette College may submit requests for materials unavailable in Skillman and Kirby Libraries. Use the forms in the ILL system, or send an order directly from the library’s electronic databases, such as WorldCat and other periodical databases, using the WebBridge feature. Just look for a link to "Lafayette WebBridge" or the WebBridge icon:
Ask a librarian if you would like help or more information.
To submit requests you must first log in to the system using your Network ID and password. Note that the first time you access the ILL system you will be asked to fill out a brief form to establish your account.
Journal articles and book chapters from Lafayette-owned materials will be scanned and delivered as PDFs to your ILL account. Faculty and study abroad students logging into the interlibrary loan system will see a "Document Delivery Request" option from the main page. Requests should be filled within 24 to 48 hours. Due to copyright restrictions, requests for document delivery should be limited to items needed for private study, scholarship, or research (the library cannot scan for course packs or reserves).
Please let us know if you're studying abroad by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
To request renewals for materials borrowed via interlibrary loan, log on to the interlibrary loan system and select the link to "View/Renew Checked Out Items."
About Interlibrary loan
Interlibrary Loan is used to request materials unavailable in the collections of Skillman and Kirby Libraries. ILL staff locate these materials in other libraries and borrow or obtain photocopies on behalf of Lafayette users. More about ILL.
