Schmid Law Library has updated our Inter-Library Loan (ILL) request form – it’s now an easy-to-use online form available in the library’s Quick Links menu. Paper copies are still available at either the circulation desk or reference desks.

Items or article copies can usually be obtained from another library – on average, the process takes about 2 weeks at little or no cost. Schmid Law Library ILL Policies are located here.
