Inter-Library Loan

Patron Types

The library needs to know what kind of patron you are, because procedures for processing interlibrary loan requests vary slightly based on your circumstances. Also, it helps the library track statistics on how our ILL services are used. If you need to change your patron type, please contact Access Services.
