The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

Interlibrary Loan provides access to items such as books, newspapers, journal articles, dissertations, etc. from a wide variety of sources that are not available in the Marriott Library. By use of a library system called OCLC, which may be accessed by you via the WorldCat database, we have access to millions of volumes. In most instances electronic access to articles can be provided within 24-48 hours and books can be provided to you within 1 to 2 weeks.

Document Delivery provides electronic access to journal articles and book chapters from the Marriott Library print collection. Delivery time will be approximately 24-48 hours. You are able to submit your interlibrary loan and document delivery requests through your same ILLiad login. Our staff will determine if what you are requesting is something the Marriott Library owns or if we need to request your material from another library. Journal articles and book chapters from the Marriott Library print collection will be scanned and delivered as PDF files to your ILLiad account. You will be notified via email when your items are available electronically.

Marriott Library Interlibrary Loan is for the use of students, faculty, staff, and emeritus faculty of the University of Utah. Health sciences students, faculty, and staff patrons submit requests through Eccles Health Sciences Library and Law School patrons submit requests through James E. Faust Law Library, S.J. Quinney College of Law.

There is no charge for Marriott Library Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery services.

Interlibrary Loan provides access to items such as books, newspapers, journal articles, dissertations, etc. from a wide variety of sources that are not available in the Marriott Library.

Marriott Library materials that are currently checked out by other patrons can be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Journals do not circulate, but articles can be requested.

Many items can be provided from alternative sources, such as online full-text databases like JSTOR or EBSCOhost Web Databases. These Research Databases are available on the Marriott Library web page. Some dissertations are available for free downloading through Dissertations & Theses: Global.

Not all items are available from Interlibrary Loan. Most libraries will not loan rare or valuable materials, including manuscripts, basic reference materials, or materials in high demand. Dissertations that do not circulate may be purchased from Dissertations & Theses: Global

Request textbooks and course required materials through the Reserve Desk.

Books are held at the Level 1 Information and Security Desk. Notification of their availability will be sent to you via email. The owning library may require the material to remain in the Marriott Library. If so, it will be held in the Special Collections Reading Room on the 4th floor and you will be notified via email.

If necessary, you can arrange for someone else to pick up an Interlibrary Loan hold for you. The person who picks up the item must show the staff at the West Entrance an email from you giving that person permission.

Campus Delivery of interlibrary loan materials is available to lower campus faculty, staff, and graduate students. Please enter your department location (e.g. LINCO 1400) in the Campus Delivery field when submitting your ILL request. After the materials arrive at our library, they will be delivered to your office within 1 to 2 business days. To arrange for a pickup, please email the Pull and Delivery Service.

Articles will be posted on your ILLiad account online. You will receive an email notifying you of their availability.

Borrowed items are to be returned to the Information & Security Desks at either the West Entrance on level 1 or the East Entrance on level 3. Patrons will be held responsible for overdue fines and/or replacement costs of missing books as a result of removing ILL labels or returning to any other location. To arrange for a pickup from your campus office, please email the Pull and Delivery Service.

Interlibrary Loan materials are meant for short term use only. Due dates for Interlibrary Loan materials are assigned by the lending library. Lending libraries have the right to recall Interlibrary Loan materials and you might be asked to return items before the due date.

Interlibrary Loan materials may be renewed for 2 weeks from the original due date, pending the approval of the owning institution. You can request a renewal through your ILLiad account or by contacting our office by phone (801-581-6010) or email. Please reference the Transaction Number (TN) of your request.

The due date for items is printed on the ILL book strap. Items need to be returned to the Library Information & Security Desks by this date. You will be charged a $10.00 fine for items 7 days overdue. If the book is not returned before the 15th day past the due date, you will be billed for replacement of the item (at least $50.00) plus a $25.00 processing fee. The $10.00 overdue fine and the $25.00 processing fee will not be forgiven. These fines need to be paid in person at the Reserve Desk on Level 2 of the Marriott Library or by calling 801-581-8203 with a credit card.

Reminder and overdue notices are sent as a courtesy. You are responsible for returning your ILL books on time.

The Interlibrary Loan office is located on the 5th floor of the Marriott Library. Patron access to the ILL office is unavailable. You can contact us via telephone at 801-581-6010 or email us with any additional questions.

The Interlibrary Loan contact hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

You can view the records of your past Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery requests for three years. Requests older than three years are removed from the ILLiad server each year. If you want to keep a record of your past requests, please print or save a copy. If you need assistance call 801-581-6010 or email
