Library Orientation for Faculty: Interlibrary Loan

Use this LibGuide to learn more about Lightner Library and its resources as well as the services the library offers to Keuka faculty.

Interlibrary Loan

Lightner Library's Interlibrary Loan  (ILL) service allows our students and faculty to request materials at no charge that Lightner Library does not own.  You can find the ILL link on the library's home page.  First-time users must register to use this online system.  Click on the link, read the instructions, and follow the directions to register. 

Just be sure before you request something on ILL that the library does not:

  • Already own the book/resource
  • Have access to the article in print or in a database 

If you are not sure how to figure out if the library has access to the book or article, check with a reference librarian who will be glad to help you.

If you have questions about ILL, please contact or call (315) 279-5350.

Get It Now Service

To better support faculty research, we have added the Get It Now service from the Copyright Clearance Center.  It complements Interlibrary Loan by allowing us to provide faculty with access to journal content that is not currently available through Interlibrary Loan.  The ILL librarian will request these materials through Get It Now and a PDF copy of the article will be delivered to the faculty member through the library's Interlibrary Loan service.  The cost for requesting these articles will be covered by the library.

It is important for faculty to note that the agreement we have signed with the Copyright Clearance Center for this service has some important limitations:

  • It only works with publishers who have agreed to participate
  • Content delivered may be used only by the individual faculty member for his or her own personal, non-commercial academic or research activities recognized by the institution.
