Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Article Delivery

Our policies and procedures are different while access to library buildings is restricted.
ILL and Article Delivery are available for Rutgers faculty, staff, and students. Physical materials can be picked up using Click and Collect. We've resumed digitizing articles and book chapters from our print collections.
Turnaround times for ILL may be longer than usual due to material quarantine and the status of our partner libraries.

Please note: E-ZBorrow and UBorrow remain suspended for the time being. We expect these services to resume within a few weeks.

You can use our ILL services to request books, articles, book chapters, microforms, conference proceedings, or other materials that aren't available at Rutgers, or to request a digital scan of an article or book chapter from one of our non-circulating collections. Physical materials can be picked up from any Rutgers library. Note: we do not borrow textbooks or e-books.

ILL services are available, free of charge, for current students, faculty, and staff; faculty emeriti; visiting scholars/faculty and students; RBHS volunteer faculty; and Rowan and CCC affiliates.

For questions about Interlibrary Loan, E-ZBorrow, UBorrow, ILLiad, or Article Delivery, please send us a question via email. Rutgers also lends books and articles to other institutions.
