About Interlibrary Loan

The library's Interlibrary Loan Department (ILL) provides free document delivery to UMassD students, faculty, and staff. ILL can obtain the full-text of almost any article you need. All you need to do is complete the forms found by using links on this page. 

Students often ask how long it takes to receive an article. Turnaround time varies from request to request. It's largely dependent upon the loaning institution as we need to wait for the "loaning" institution to upload the article. That said, the average turnaround is about 3 working days. 

If you don't have enough information on your topic, or you just want advice on finding more information, please contact your subject librarian!

Request Articles & Book Chapters


When filling out the article request form, be careful to complete the information accurately. If you need help reading your citation (e.g.,  identifying the journal title, volume number, etc.), please watch the Reading Citations tutorial or contact a librarian.
