Interlibrary Loan

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

Other Restrictions

Items borrowed through Interlibrary Loan may not be put on Reserve or borrowed for group use.

Since Interlibrary Loan is a courtesy, the requester takes full responsibility for the item borrowed and must observe restrictions the lending library may impose.

Vassar College adheres to the regulations of the New York State Interlibrary Loan Policy, the ALA Interlibrary Loan Code, the International Interlibrary Loan Code and the Copyright Act to comply with the law and to maintain good will with other libraries.

Federal Copyright Notice

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.
