Interlibrary loans are transactions in which library materials are made available by one library to another. The purpose of interlibrary loan is for exchange of resources throughout the state and nation. Resource sharing among libraries is desired and encouraged for mutual benefit. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service supplements the locally owned resources and provides students and faculty access to a wider range of materials beyond the library collection. The library seeks to provide ILL service in accordance with the Copyright Law of Title 17, U.S. Code, National Interlibrary Loan Code for the U.S., National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyright Works Guidelines, and the Louisiana Interlibrary Loan Code.
