Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows UConn Law faculty, students, and staff to request library materials from institutions all over the world. If a book, journal article, or other item is not available from the UConn Law Library, then the ILL department will attempt to obtain it from a global network of libraries.
