Interlibrary Loan

If UK Libraries doesn’t have an item you’re looking for, we may be able to help you find it at another library through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services. The William T. Young Library ILL office serves all campus libraries except the Law Library.

Law Library users can find more information on the Law Library Interlibrary Loan page.

Requests & Scheduling

To access ILL services, use your linkblue account information to sign in or create an ILLiad account.

Once you've determined that UK Libraries does not own the item you need:

  • Log in to your ILLiad account
  • Select the type of material you would like to request from the main menu
  • Provide complete and accurate bibliographic information for your item
  • Choose your preferred pick-up location at one of our campus libraries

Most physical items will arrive within two weeks of your request. Electronic items, such as article requests, usually arrive within 24-48 hours.
