Interlibrary Loan Lending Policy

Libraries that cannot submit requests via OCLC may use our institutional interlibrary loan request form. To create an account, please call 518-442-3613.

Individuals not affiliated with the University at Albany wishing to borrow materials from the University's collections must make an interlibrary loan request through their home library. A home library could be a public, academic, or corporate library.

All circulating materials can be loaned through interlibrary loan.  Our loan period for books and media is eight weeks.  Renewals are granted on a case by case basis. Rare materials are subject to special conditions.

There are no lending charges for:

  • CDLC libraries
  • IDS Project libraries
  • RapidILL reciprocal libraries
  • LVIS libraries

For all other libraries, lending charges are as follows:

  • $15.00 IFM or 1.5 IFLA vouchers for loan or copy
