Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided to faculty, staff and students to supplement the Library's collection.  You can request materials (books, articles, etc.) from other libraries around the world with this service.  Simply fill out the form after logging into the ILLIAD system to request an item.

This is a different service from Get This, which will request materials available on the Ann Arbor campus.


What is Peer Review?

Peer review is the process in which a scholar's work is reviewed by experts in a field before being accepted for publication (in the case of journals).  Many people give more credence to journal articles that have gone through a peer review process because they have been reviewed by experts in the field (rather than just an editor as is the case of a newspaper or magazine) before being accepted for publication.
