Interlibrary Loan

The Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Services (ILL/DDS) department processes requests for books, articles, musical scores, DVD’s and other materials from other libraries.   

We have migrated away from ILLiad and have moved to a centralized requesting system.  

You will now find a blank ILL request form button at the top of the search box in the library catalog.  You will also find an ILL button embedded in the Everything Search.

For Faculty and Staff

This service checks out and delivers library materials to your designated department office pickup location.  Deliveries are made during regular business hours, Monday – Friday, and most items are delivered to the LED mail tub located in your department office within the next business day.    

The LED mail tub is for delivery only, not returns. Books may be returned to the circulation desk or one of the library book return receptacles located at the new entrance of the John C. Hitt Library, and in the parking lot between Millican Hall and Phillips Hall.  

Distance Learners

This service is for currently enrolled UCF students taking only online courses or UCF Faculty and students at Connect campuses, as well as Retired UCF Faculty. Materials are checked out and mailed to your home on the next business day.    

Items may be returned to any of the UCF Libraries or mailed back to the Interlibrary Loan Department.  (You must pay for postage.)  

Please contact us if your address changes during the semester.  Updating your address in myUCF does not update your home mailing address in LED.    

You will need to re-register for LED every semester so we can verify eligibility and ensure that we have your correct mailing address.  

Note:  Distance learners residing outside of Florida cannot borrow physical items owned by other libraries through Interlibrary Loan.  Please use your local library for assistance.
