Your Responsibilities in Using ILL Services

  2. Always update your account whenever you experience a change of address.
  3. When your materials arrive, we will notify you of availability for pick-up of physical materials at the 2nd-floor Service Desk. Electronic materials will be emailed to you.
  4. Return materials on time. The ILL system relies strongly on this personal responsibility requirement
  5. Cancel any requests that you find you no longer need — this courtesy helps ILL work well for everyone. We appreciate it!
