Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service available to Lesley University students, faculty, and staff that allows them to borrow books, journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings, dissertations and theses, and audiovisual materials not owned by Lesley Library and not available through Fenway Libraries Online (FLO).
Then, be sure what you need isn't already in our collection or available for free on the Internet:
We recommend seeking assistance from our Research Librarians before placing ILLiad requests for the first time.
WE WILL CANCEL REQUESTS THAT EXCEED:
WE MAY CANCEL REQUESTS THAT CAN BE FOUND AT OUR LIBRARY, A FLO LIBRARY, OR FOR FREE ON THE INTERNET.
Limits are placed on the number of requests a library user can place to ensure the research needs of all populations are met. Limits are are follows:
If you need to exceed the limit above, please contact a Research Librarian for clearance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you keep an ILLiad item for longer than its due date, it damages our standing with the lending library from whom we borrowed the item and compromises our ability to request items from them in the future, so please return your items by the due date.
Students: If you keep an ILLiad item for longer than its due date, we may place a hold on your bursar account until the item is returned to us.
ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT DELIVERY
Staff will scan & upload a requested chapter from our books or a requested article from our bound periodicals to your ILLiad account, usually within 3 business days.
If you do not work on the Lesley University campuses in Cambridge, please do not request entire books (or other physical items) unless you are able to pick them up and return them to Sherrill Library; if that is the case, please be sure to leave a note in the request form to avoid cancellation.
