Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service for all current Madonna University students, staff, and faculty. It provides access to books or journal articles that the Madonna University Library does not own. ILL will request materials from other domestic institutions on your behalf. Because the lending Library could be in another part of the country, please plan ahead and consider the assignment due date.
The Madonna University Library does not set circulation policies for borrowed items, meaning there could be a short loan period, in-Library use only, or no renewals.
Please return ILL items on time. Madonna University Library does not set replacement costs if the items are returned late. The owning Library has the right to charge a replacement fee of their choosing, and they can be very expensive. Any assessed fees are the responsibility of the borrower.
To avoid delays, always check the Madonna Catalog and Full Text E-Journals to see if we own the item before submitting ILL requests and use complete citations.
