Interlibrary Loan (ILL)



Please note:

Service may be delayed due holiday library closures and shipping delays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) provides academic materials not available at the University. Service is available to any member of the University community who needs material for an academic research project or course-related assignment. Those eligible for the service include:

  • Faculty
  • Currently enrolled students
  • Staff

Guest borrowers (i.e., those who have purchased borrowing privileges at the Princeton University Library) do not have interlibrary loan privileges. Please request items through your corporate or public library.

Faculty and students of the Institute for Advanced Study and the Princeton Theological Seminary should use the interlibrary borrowing service at their respective institutions.

If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact Resource Sharing - Interlibrary Services at 609-258-3272 or If you've forgotten your password please try resetting it.
