Interlibrary Loan

ILL tag cloud

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) assists scholarly research by obtaining library materials not owned by the Pratt Libraries. ILL locates needed materials in other Libraries, borrows books and obtains photocopied material on behalf of eligible Pratt Library patrons. If you are unsure whether ILL is the best way to get what you need, or if you are having trouble finding information on your topic, ask a Reference Librarian.
