Materials borrowed via Interlibrary Loan MUST be returned to the Lied circulation desk, or to branch library service desks. DO NOT return ILL books in outside book drops.
Get Help - Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
There is no charge for Interlibrary Loan for current UNLV faculty, staff, and students.
Every effort is made to obtain requested materials quickly. While some requests can be delivered within 24 hours or a few days, it is best to plan for a one to four week turnaround time.
Bring your UNLV ID to the delivery location you have selected (Lied Circulation, Architecture, Music, or Curriculum Libraries). Your Interlibrary Loan book will be checked out to your ILLiad account, so you will not see it on your regular library circulation record.
Renewals are determined by the lending library. If renewals are not allowed at all, the paper strap on the item will clearly say NO RENEWALS.
If renewal requests are allowed, simply click on View/Renew Checked Out Items in your ILLiad account to access the item and request a renewal on it. You will receive a temporary extension on your due date, and we will send you an official due date via email after we hear back from the lending library.
There will be a $2 per day overdue fine for all books obtained through ILL. This fine applies to ALL patrons.
Only UNLV faculty, staff, and students may use UNLV Interlibrary Loan. Its primary mission is to assist faculty and graduate students in obtaining materials required for their research. Undergraduates may use ILL for course-related purposes only after locally-available resources have been exhausted.
