Currently ILL is continuing to process all requests for articles/copies. Please note that due to many library closures any submitted requests for print books or other physical materials outside the UH library system will not be fulfilled at this time. Requests for physical materials will remain in your ILLiad account in temporary hold status.
Depending on availability, we may be able to obtain one chapter per requested print book. You may note in your request that you want a specific chapter in lieu of the requested book.
Interlibrary Loan is a service for you to request for research materials not owned by the Neumann Library but important to support your research, study and instructional needs. This service is available to all UHCL currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. If your affiliation is with another UH campus or area college or university, please use the interlibrary loan service at your home institution's library. Community users can consult with their local public library.
ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan Internet Accessible Database) is the resource sharing management software used by the Neumann Library to process and manage all UHCL interlibrary loan requests. Through ILLiad, you can make & track requests, receive & renew requests, and view borrowing history & due dates all in one convenient electronic platform.
Submission of an interlibrary loan request form indicates that the requester recognizes and agrees to comply with copyright laws and guidelines governing duplication of materials for interlibrary loan.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
Neumann Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a request, if in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. The following is a guideline we follow on articles request: Libraries requesting photocopies of articles from journals published in the last five years must limit those requests to: a) one article per issue of a journal for an individual, and b) five articles per journal for the institution. When limits have been reached for the year, the library will pay required copyright royalty fees if possible. A Research Librarian or Interlibrary Loan staff member can explain the limitations.
No, not for books borrowed from other libraries through interlibrary loan. It is because the system behind the Library Catalog ( Millennium) and the system behind the Interlibrary Loan system (ILLiad) do not work together correctly to reflect books borrowed from other libraries.
