Scan and Deliver: For students and faculty

The Interlibrary loan staff will scan and deliver via email copies of articles and book excerpts from any electronic or print source owned by the Jacob Burns Law Library.

  • Submit a request via your ILL account. 
  • You will receive the copy as a pdf to your law Gmail acocunt. 
  • Exclusions: Course reserves, special collections, fragile material, requests exceeding 100 pages
  • All requests will follow copyright and library policy. 
  • One article per journal; one chapter of a book or not more than 10% of an item.  
  • Request turnaround is between 1 -2 business days, but may be longer due to limited staff. 
  • If the item you request is not located in the library the staff will submit your request for interlibrary loan.  If the request is converted to an ILL request, turnaround time may be longer as it is dependent upon an external library.  

Books on Hold

The Interlibrary loan staff will place a circulating  book, owned by the law library, on hold for you.

  • Send a request via your ILL account.
  • If the book is available, the staff will obtain the book, check it out to you. You will then receive an email notice to pick it up at the Grab&Go station located in the Reference Commons room.
  • If the book isn't available, the staff will send your request to external libraries as an ILL request.
