Borrowing and Circulation

Students, faculty and staff of Indiana University, persons affiliated with Indiana University, residents of the State of Indiana, CIC Scholars, and OCLC Scholars may borrow or check out library materials. (More information about library cards) Most libraries in the IU Bloomington Library system have the same basic policies for book checkout and renewal.  Individual libraries maintain some special collections.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

The IUB Libraries will try to get materials from other libraries for you if we do not own what you are looking for.  Any current faculty, staff, or student may use our free ILL service.

Use the ILL service for articles not owned on the Bloomington campus and for books not owned by any IU library.

To use this service, submit a request giving us as much information as you can.  First time users will be asked for some registration information.

To have books owned by an IU library delivered to a campus library near you, use Request Delivery.  To have articles owned only in print on the Bloomington campus delivered to you, use Request Article Delivery

See Document Delivery Services for more information.

Lending to Other Libraries - Information for other libraries and unaffiliated users who want to borrow something from IUB.
