InterLibrary Loan is a service through which library materials not owned by the Penn Library System may be requested from other libraries. Penn's membership in the Research Libraries Group, regional consortia, participation in the Mid-Atlantic Law Library Cooperative and the National Library of Medicine's DOCLINE program provide rich resources for expedited borrowing of books and journal articles.
All currently affiliated University of Pennsylvania faculty, staff, and students are eligible to use this service, which is administered by five Interlibrary Loan offices, each serving a particular constituency. Your affiliation determines your service unit.
