WKU Libraries Interlibrary Loan (ILL) System

Issue/Question

What is Interlibrary Loan and how do I access the system?

Resolution

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is an agreement among libraries to share library resources needed for research. WKU faculty, staff and students may use ILL as a supplement to the WKU Libraries. Books, journal articles, dissertations, government documents, microfilm materials, and other items may be borrowed via ILL. 

Patrons with an active NetID account will have access to the system. The following patrons are eligible for ILL services: 

  • Faculty
  • WKU Retirees
  • WKU Staff
  • WKU Students

 Note: WKU affiliates and alumni are ineligible for ILL services.
