Due to COVID-19, the Main Campus Interlibrary Loan service will be prioritizing electronic access to materials. Electronic books and chapter/article scans will be provided when available. We are unable to borrow hard copy titles at this time. Please consider contacting your academic liaison (https://libraries.uky.edu/Liaisons) to see if the desired title can be purchased in electronic format by UK Libraries or submitting it as an ILL article request. Any additional ILL/DD questions can be directed to ILLBorrowing@uky.edu.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) attempts to fill gaps in the UK Libraries' collection. If the collection lacks items needed for research, University of Kentucky faculty, emeritus faculty, students, and staff may be able to obtain loans or reproductions of the articles needed for their research. The ILL staff will attempt to obtain the material from another library or document vendor. Three ILL departments are available to help UK Researchers.
