Q. What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
The user makes a request with the Barry Library, which, acting as an intermediary, identifies owners of the desired item, places the request, receives the item, makes it available to the user, and arranges for its return. The process is usually free of charge.
The lending library typically sets the due date and overdue fees of the material borrowed. Although books and scans/photocopies of journal articles are the most frequently requested items, some libraries will lend other materials.
