Interlibrary Loan

Use Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) to borrow or purchase items not found in Vassar's collection.

How Long May I Keep An ILL Item?

ConnectNY: the loan period is 42 days from the day you check out the item.  One renewal is allowed.

ILLiad: the loan period for items is set by the lending library, usually 4 weeks.  CRL materials may be kept for 3 months with unlimited renewals. However, materials recalled by CRL must be returned promptly.

All photocopies and/or PDFs of articles are yours to keep.
