University of Connecticut University Libraries

The University of Connecticut Document Delivery / Interlibrary Loan (DD/ILL) service helps you obtain scans or loans of materials. These services are available without charge to UConn faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students to support academic research, instruction, and professional growth.

Please create your My ILLiad account before placing requests at UConn and beyond. This will help to create a smooth and seamless process, and save you time later!

Copyright restrictions prohibit the borrowing of textbooks, workbooks, and standardized tests. Please refer to the UConn Co-op, Amazon, or a similar commercial service to obtain these materials.
