Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows UTC students, faculty, and staff to obtain copies of items that the UTC Library does not own.
- You can create requests for books and articles, view checkouts, renew loans, access delivered articles, and track requests through your account.
You will be notified by e-mail when your requested item is available.
Articles are typically delivered electronically via a persistent URL or a PDF file to your ILLiad Account.
Book/Physical item loans typically take a week to 10 days to arrive (delivery times vary widely). Books/physical items can be picked up at the Check Out Desk on the first floor of the library.
Tips for Faster Service
- Carefully search for your citation in the UTC Catalog.
- Make sure your citations are as accurate as possible, including authors, titles, and ISSN’s or ISBN’s when available.
- Make sure to include any specific instructions or notes if applicable.
