Before sending out an article, staff must check that the publisher's license allows transmission and sharing via ILL. Many of our databases allow articles to be sent via this method to patrons at other libraries, provided that a copyright notice is attached.
- Electronic Delivery OK - Electronic delivery of articles, either via a document delivery service (e.g., Odyssey or Ariel) or posting the article for a limited amount of time on a remote server (OCLC ArticleExchange) is permitted.
- Print Only - The library may only send a print copy of the article via snail mail.
- No ILL Permitted - The library may not trasmit any material downloaded from the database to other libraries via Interlibrary Loan in any format.
Patrons are advised that while ILL staff try their best to obtain materials from libraries' electronic holdings, sometimes licensing agreements prohibit the owning libraries from sending the article. In the event that we cannot find a library authorized to lend, we will cancel the request and advise you of further options.
