Interlibrary Loan

ILL Borrowing for Current USC Gould Members

The USC Law Library provides interlibrary loan (ILL) borrowing services only to current USC Gould students, faculty, and staff. This service is available free of charge. When a needed item is not available at any of the University Park Campus (USC) libraries, members of the law school community can place an ILL request to obtain that item. Please see our ILL borrowing policies for details on how to submit ILL requests and for an overview of our interlibrary loan service policies and procedures.

ILL Borrowing for Other USC Members

Other USC patrons on the University Park Campus and/or Norris Medical Campus must contact IDD, central USC Libraries' Integrated Document Delivery service, and/or Norris Medical Library's interlibrary loan service, DocRetriever, via USC Libraries, to place interlibrary loan requests.

ILL Lending to Other Libraries

USC Gould School of Law Library is an OCLC member. Our OCLC symbol is ZZX.

ILL Lending Policy: We accept ILL requests from OCLC libraries that use the IFM payment option, and the requests of libraries with which we have a reciprocal lending agreement. We use the OCLC-based WorldShare module to process interlibrary loan requests and prefer to receive ILL requests via OCLC's WCRS. We will also accept requests via fax, mail and/or telephone.
