Question: What Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services are available to me based on my location?

Answer


ILL services for electronic material (e-journals and scanned articles, scanned book chapters, or e-books) are available to NYU students, faculty, administrators and staff, regardless of physical location.  E-book purchase will be default fulfillment for full book requests if an electronic version is available for purchase through library vendors. 

 

Physical ILL materials can be requested for pick up from an NYU library location or for home delivery if you are located in the domestic US.  Please review the location options below for more information on how ILL services for physical material are impacted by your location.
