Beginning Saturday, May 1, the University Libraries will resume borrowing of physical Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials from a select number of institutions to CU Boulder faculty and staff.

Resumption of this service is part of a phased restart of the libraries’ ILL borrowing. The service will be extended to graduate students in the coming weeks. 

To make an ILL request, register or login to your ILLiad account and enter your IdentiKey username and password. Once logged in, choose the format type and fill out the form with as much information about your item as possible. The more information provided, the greater the likelihood we can fulfill your request quickly.

Once you’ve submitted your request and the libraries have received the item from the lending institution, you will receive an email with a link to schedule a pickup time. Borrowers may pick up their request via contactless hold pickup at the east entrance of Norlin Library (near the Sundial Plaza).

Time frames between request and check out vary depending on the item and borrowing location. Please plan for longer than average delivery times.

Prospector borrowing and document delivery services are not available at this time.
