With many universities transitioning to online-only instruction, libraries have ceased loaning print materials. As a result, we cannot request print items from other libraries. Requests for articles from electronic resources will still be processed.
We will hold your requests for print items and process them as libraries resume services.
We understand your concern regarding returning materials. Until further notice, please do not return items to Interlibrary Loan or any of the branch locations. Our staff are working remotely and are unable to process returns.
No fines will be assessed during the closure, and we have stopped sending out overdue notices.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Welcome to Virginia Tech's Interlibrary Loan. We provide a variety of services to Virginia Tech faculty, students, and staff located in the Blacksburg campus area, in addition to extended users across the country.
All Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, regardless of your location of study, may request materials on ILLiad for materials:
We ship ILLiad requests via UPS to users outside the immediate Blacksburg campus area (Montgomery, Giles and Pulaski counties).
Articles, book chapters, and many technical papers are delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account. Occasionally, due to copyright restrictions, a paper copy of an article or standard will be sent to the mailing address listed on your ILLiad account.
